A gang related shooting in Greeley? Yikes!jimmnn said:An 18-year-old woman was shot to death at Island Grove Regional Park Sunday evening.
Police offered limited details late Sunday evening, but she was killed in what appeared to be a gang-related shooting shortly after 9 p.m.
Late Sunday officers were still searching for two teenagers as suspects in the case.
The woman was shot in the head. She was rushed to North Colorado Medical Center but died from her injuries shortly after arriving. Officers were called to the hospital on a disturbance after family members gathered there, but nothing serious erupted.
The shooting took place in the center drive of the park at least halfway between the arena and the south entrance of the park.
Officers responded to a 911 call from bikers camping out for Thunder in the Rockies on a fight with bottles and a shots fired. Officers arrived a minute later and found the teen on the ground bleeding from the head.
Police stopped cars driving away from the scene and got descriptions of witnesses but received limited information about the car where the suspects escaped, gathering that it was only a dark vehicle.
The bikers who witnessed the shooting did not give their names. They said they called 911 after they heard a few shots fired by a heavy-set male about 6 feet tall. The bikers said they saw the man fire two shots and then walk toward a group of people gathered for cruising around Island Grove. The man fired several shots in the crowd.
The witnesses said they didn't know if the man was aiming for the young woman, but they did say he appeared to be attempting to hit someone in the crowd.
Officers were withholding the name of the victim pending notification of the family.
