FORT WORTH, Texas — The Fort Worth Police Department Gang Unit arrested three people in connection with a shooting at Village Creek Park last week that injured five people, the Fort Worth Police Department announced moments ago.

Police say the investigation remains ongoing to determine if others were involved in the shooting but, announced Wednesday, the arrests of 21-year-old Dcameron McKellar, 26-year-old Kristopher Robinzine, and 20-year-old Kieston Allen.

On Sunday, May 10, 2020, police say approximately 400 people had gathered at the Village Creek Park when, just before 6 p.m., gunfire rang out. Police officers were already at the park having responded to numerous city ordinance complaints for people riding ATVs and drinking.

The shooting occurred shortly after a Fort Worth Police Department supervisor began ordering disbursement of the large crowd.

"Numerous gunshots soon rang out and many fled the scene; this was captured by a police vehicle in-car camera system," the department stated in releasing dash-cam video of the incident. "Officers quickly ran to the aid of those wounded and summoned emergency medical attention while other officers began searching for those involved."

Of the five injured in the gunfire, police initially said two were critically injured and all were expected to recover from their injuries.

"As this investigation continues, our focus remains on the safety of the pubic and the accountability of those who threaten that safety," read a statement from the department today.

McKellar was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is being held at the Tarrant County Jail on a $50,000 bond; Ronzine was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a $50,000 bond but was also being held on charges for possession of marijuana under two ounces and possession of marijuana between four ounces and five pounds; and Allen was charged with terroristic threat. Bond and booking information was not immediately available for Allen.
