OH: Party Attendees may have Returned Fire at Assailants who Wounded 24, Killed One

The incident occurred at a large outdoor party at Kelly and 8th avenues where two dozen people were wounded and a 27-year-old man was killed.

The victim was identified Monday morning as LaTeris Cook of Akron.

Roughly two hours before the shooting, Akron officers were dispatched to the scene at 10 p.m. for a loud party of over 200 people. Harding said the officer dispersed the crowd but many partygoers returned before midnight.

When officers returned after midnight, the scene was "chaotic," he said. Dozens of shell casings littered the ground. Many people were still around, including some who were wounded and needed to be transported by ambulance.

There might have been upward of 200 people at the party when the shooting occurred, Harding said.
