The incident occurred during a gathering to remember Lorenzo McLaughlin Jr., who was killed in a shooting over the weekend. As the event was ending, a fight broke out and multiple gunshots were fired. Video footage captured several armed Black men at the scene. Following the altercation, a car sped away and eventually crashed through a fence, landing in a swimming pool.
