Williamsport, Lycoming County-- A community reacts as police continue to investigate the events that led to a deadly shooting Monday night in central Pennsylvania.
That shooting happened just after 7PM at Flanigan Park, near downtown Williamsport.
The park has been a problem site on multiple occasions in the past. But now, the violence there has turned deadly.
Police are trying to track down the two men they believe are responsible. And they're asking for the public's help to catch the culprits.
As Myesha Upshur walks her one-year-old daughter and her five-year-old niece to daycare, the bursts of gunfire that rang out right across the street Monday night are fresh on her mind.
Upshur said, "I'm disgusted because it was a child's basketball game. There's no reason for us to be out here shooting and killing one another over whatever it was over-- it doesn't even matter."
After some sort of dispute, police say 23-year-old Kevan Connelly was shot to death here at the basketball courts at Flanigan Park.
Chalk lines still highlight the evidence gathered by investigators Monday night.
Now, police are looking for two men -- 17-year-old Raymarr Alford (a.k.a. Mar Mar) and 22-year-old Qu Mar Moore (a.k.a. Snoop) -- whom officials believe may have fled the area.
Those who live here say there could be any number of reasons behind the violence.
David Baker, of Williamsport, noted, "You've got low-income (housing) over there. You've got a lot of people that are struggling out here. If you give us some jobs, and give people a chance, I believe it'll make a difference."
There's been talk about installing surveillance cameras here at Flanigan Park for years.
In fact, the city even acquired federal funding for it.
Upshur continued, "I think that's what they should do. I think they should put cameras over here so that the kids can come over and play, and not have to worry about losing their lives."
Whatever the solution, people we spoke with say something needs to be done-- and fast.
Baker added, "It's my opinion that if you get more jobs, and get them out of the street, and get some leadership-- I believe you'll see a change. But as long as we're in an area like this where there are no jobs, you're going to have a lot of crime like that."
Anyone with information on the shooting at Flanigan Park is urged to call city police at 570-329-4066 or 570-327-7560.
