FORT WORTH, TX (AP) - Three men are in custody charged in a shooting at a crowded North Texas park that wounded five people and sparked chaos among the crowd, Fort Worth police said Wednesday.

Dcameron McKellar, 21, and Kristopher Robinzine, 26, were being held in the Tarrant County Jail charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. McKellar’s bond was set at $50,000 while Robinzine, who also was charged with marijuana possession, is jailed on $52,000 bond. Kieston Allen, 20, who was released on bond, is charged with making a terroristic threat.

No attorneys for the three were listed in jail records.

Police said the investigation and search for possible suspects continues into the May 10 shooting at Village Creek Park that sent 400 people fleeing. Police had told the crowd that they were violating local ordinances by riding all-terrain vehicles and drinking alcohol, and not abiding social-distancing guidelines imposed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Police officers used patrol car loudspeakers and sirens to ask the crowd to disperse, with each request growing more urgent. The video then caught the sounds of numerous gunshots and showed the crowd scattering and fleeing as officers rushed to aid the wounded. It was not immediately known what prompted the gunfire.
