LORAIN — A gunshot victim was taken to the hospital from Lorain’s Central Park following a melee involving 30 to 40 people, according to police.

Curtis Wood III and his son Curtis Wood IV, who live on West 27th Street, said they were celebrating a relative’s birthday when they heard a loud popping noise about 7 p.m.

“I heard six shots, but it sounded like firecrackers to me,” Wood III said. “Then three or four minutes later, every cop in town was over there.”

Wood IV said there was a large crowd of people gathered before police arrived.
