Cousin of NFL star Davante Adams was shot dead in a daylight gun battle at a California park full of children and families Tuesday.
Ralph Fields Jr., 34, whose cousin plays for the Las Vegas Raiders, was fatally shot amid a barrage of gunfire that began at about 6 p.m. inside an East Palo Alto park, KGO reported, citing police.
Two rival groups got into an altercation and two suspects from each side pulled out guns and collectively unloaded 33 shots in Jack Farrell Park, police said. Fields was struck by a bullet and later died at an area hospital. Three other people were shot and treated for non life-threatening wounds.
The wild gunfight erupted at a time when the park was packed with children playing and families practicing for a church-run softball tournament, according to local outlets.
