COLUMBUS -- Police say two adults and two children were injured in a shooting after a party at Weinland Park just north of downtown Columbus.

The shooting happened just before 9:45 p.m. Saturday in the 1200 block of Summit Street. Detectives say between 150 -200 people were attending the Short North Reunion when shots were fired.

"At least a dozen," said Matt Roper, who lives across the street from the park and was home at the time of the shooting. “I just kind heard gunshots going off. And I was like — those aren’t fireworks.”
