Hallowe’en was marred by tragedy yesterday after a man in a red hoodie opened fire on a group of children out trick-or-treating.
Witnesses described a crazed gunman shooting at children who were gathered outside a house where a Hallowe’en party was taking place.
The terrified children fled inside the house and the gunman made his escape. Once inside the house it transpired that one of the children, an eight year-old boy, had sustained a gun shot wound and he was taken to Len Bonheur hospital where his condition was described as “non-critical.”
Memphis Police are hunting for the gunman and have yet to make an arrests in connection with the incident. Forensic teams have been searching for bullet casings at the scene in order to try to identify the weapon used.
