The shooting occurred at around 7 p.m. local time in Birmingham's Patton Park, where hundreds of people were enjoying the warm weather on Easter Sunday. There was an altercation among a group of men in the park that led to "several shots" being fired, Sgt. Rod Mauldin of the Birmingham Police Department said at a press conference.
A 32-year-old woman, who was an innocent bystander, was shot dead inside a car. The five other people who were shot -- ages 4, 15, 16, 17 and 21 -- were transported to hospitals in stable condition, according to Mauldin.
