    Shots fired at a park near youth football practice

    A couple of teens at a park in Daytona get into a fight, go to their vehicles and each start shooting at the other. It's being said that 12-15 shots were fired, amazingly the only injury I've heard about is a woman across the street who was shot in the knee.

    We spend 4 nights a week at a local park with my boys in football practice, not this park - we're in another part of FL. But there have been several minor events at the park over the last few years. My husband always asks why I carry to football practice...

    In these type of shootouts it seems like only the innocent get hit.

    Teens?? That was a couple of adults, right there. And they're going to be held to adult standards, on this one. Rightly so.

    Sad, that so many think murder's the answer.

    When I think of teenagers I think 16 and 17 years old. you are a young adult at 18 and I don't really think of you as a teenager any longer.

    They may not be children but there is no way around the fact that they are teens. 18 is eighteen.

    Neither does the law, thankfully.

    These two are about to find out how little humor the good citizens of their state have when it comes to use of firearms in the commission of a felony. May the experience do them good.
