Ah, It all depends where you get your source.... I notice the "National Sources" leave out keen details.
I highly doubt these were legal gun owners... if even legal US citizens.
A 2-year-old girl is in critical condition after being one of three people shot Saturday night at a wedding reception in Lawrence Community
Park, police said.
The child, Yuridia Sosa, was in critical condition at Methodist Hospital after surgery today, Lawrence police detective Gary Woodruff said.
The child’s mother, Mariela Rodriguez, and another woman were shot in the legs but their wounds were not life-threatening, Woodruff said. The women
were taken to Methodist Hospital. The other woman’s name wasn’t released.
Police said a dispute erupted during the reception, leading to the gunfire.
Officers arriving at the scene said they saw Francisco Ponce, 21, Indianapolis, run across a parking lot and toss a gun under a car. Ponce was
arrested at the scene on a preliminary charge of attempted murder, Woodruff said.
His brother Isaias Ponce, 28, Indianapolis, has been charged with public intoxication, and a third brother, Jose Ponce, 23, Indianapolis, was arrested
on preliminary charges of battery, disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
Police did not disclose late Saturday if there was more than one gunman.
Lawrence Mayor Paul Ricketts arrived at the scene shortly after the shootings, which occurred about 10 p.m.
Investigators had to call for interpreters to help in the investigation Saturday night because the witnesses speak only Spanish fluently.
