Jones said two groups met at the park when one person started shooting. The sheriff said Hill may have been part of Velasquez’s group, and that it was not gang-related or connected to a Tuesday morning shooting in Liberty Twp.

“These investigations take time to piece together but eventually we determine the who, what, when and where and why,” Jones said in a release.
