The city of Akron is grappling with the aftermath of a horrific mass shooting that erupted at a crowded street party early Sunday morning. The burst of gunfire left 25 people injured, including a 27-year-old man who was killed.

According to Akron police, officers initially responded around 10 p.m. Saturday to reports of a large party with over 200 people gathered on Kelly Avenue. While they managed to temporarily disperse the crowds from blocking traffic, a group of around 100 had returned to the area by midnight.

That’s when the chaos unfolded. Akron Police Chief Brian Harding said multiple 911 calls came in reporting shots fired amid the party, with bullets apparently spraying into the crowd from at least one passing vehicle.

When police arrived at the scene, they found a nightmarish situation – victims down on the ground, spent ammunition casings from handguns and even a rifle littering the street. In the ensuing pandemonium, the shooter or shooters managed to flee before police could locate them.

Of the 25 people struck by the hail of gunfire, many had to be rushed to area hospitals. Summa Health reported treating 15 victims, with one person in critical condition and the 27-year-old male victim pronounced dead on arrival. Cleveland Clinic Akron General treated 9 other injured people as well.

Akron Mayor Shammas Malik condemned the violence and vowed that those responsible would face full prosecution. Law enforcement is now scouring for any leads, witnesses, or footage that could help identify the shooter.

“This morning, our city is reeling after the devastation of senseless violence,” Malik stated on X. “For those who have information about this horrific shooting – we need you to speak up.”

A $22,500 reward has been offered for any information leading to arrests. However, shaken residents are still struggling to comprehend how such a celebratory scene tragically metamorphosed into mass bloodshed in an instant.

“We were all just out here having fun, listening to music and next thing you know, bullets are ringing out,” recounted witness Joyoux Payne. “How? Why? That fast?”

As Akron police work around the clock to find the perpetrators, the community is left to mourn the lives senselessly cut short and pray the cycle of violence does not continue to escalate.
