Jesse Owens

Two teenagers are in critical condition after being shot on a metro playground Sunday afternoon.

A gunman opened fire just before 2:00pm at Jesse Owens playground in River Ridge, injuring three people including a 19-year old man who suffered non-life threatening injuries. Neighbors rushed to help the victims, one whom was laying on the ground in intense pain.

"I was just holding her by her hand telling her everything was going to be alright," said Norbert Dillon, who saw the shooting. "And she was telling me "help me, help me, help me, it hurt it hurt.' "

JPSO deputies have not identified the victims and are not saying what kind of gun was used in the shootings.
