“I’m pretty sure they were just hosting some sort of event for kids earlier that day,” Tallmadge resident Michael Trautman said. “So it’s just kind of a scary thing in that area with a park, baseball fields, and especially close to all these businesses and residential places,” Trautman said. Trautman believes he saw the group responsible drive away after hearing the shots.
