Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer was in attendance for the Juice Bowl as these shootings took place.
Fischer sent out these tweets, shortly after the violence unfolded saying:
To have people with guns so disrespect life, Shawnee Park, and neighborhood tradition is sad and has no place in our city.I implore those with information about the shooting to please call LMPD...
Gerald Radford was also at the park and describes a chaotic scene. "I actually turned and look to my right and I saw an individual actually shooting a weapon,” he said.
Radford, a Louisville native, could not make out who it was, but the shootings left two men dead and four others injured. LMPD is looking into what lead to the deaths.
"It embarrasses me, actually. I hate to see all the press surrounding West Louisville of this nature, but I think it does give us an opportunity for us to come together and figure out what to do," Radford told WHAS11.
Another West Louisville resident had this to say.
"It's not something that's uncommon," Richard Logsdon said. He lives across the street from the park and was preparing his Thanksgiving meal when he heard the gunfire.
He's familiar with the Juice Bowl community football game, but is thinking twice about attending in the future.
"It may be a little while before we go back over there," he said.
Police taped off two sections of the park where the two bodies were found. LMPD has not said if they are actively looking for a shooter.
For Radford, it's unnerving to know his city's crime rate is reaching record levels with the latest deaths happening on a day that's supposed to be spent giving thanks.
"On a day such as this, you really want to come together as a family and celebrate life and to know two lives were taken senselessly, it just really, really breaks my heart," he said.
