Rochester Hills, Michi­gan — A seem­ing­ly ran­dom shoot­ing at a pop­u­lar water park in Rochester Hills has left a com­mu­ni­ty in shock. An 8‑year-old boy is in crit­i­cal con­di­tion after being shot in the head by a 42-year-old gun­man who opened fire at the Brook­lands Plaza Splash Pad on Sat­ur­day evening.

Eight peo­ple were injured in the attack, includ­ing two oth­er chil­dren, a 4‑year-old boy and a 39-year-old woman. Author­i­ties described the gun­man’s ram­page as “ran­dom” with no appar­ent con­nec­tion to the victims.

The gun­man, whose iden­ti­ty has not been released, fired 28 rounds from a hand­gun before flee­ing the scene. Respond­ing offi­cers quick­ly iden­ti­fied his vehi­cle and tracked him to a near­by res­i­dence. After a tense stand­off, police found the sus­pect deceased from a self-inflict­ed gun­shot wound.

Oak­land Coun­ty Sher­iff Michael Bouchard expressed his dev­as­ta­tion at the inci­dent, call­ing it his “worst night­mare.” The attack has sparked out­rage from local and state offi­cials, with Con­gress­man John James and Gov­er­nor Gretchen Whit­mer offer­ing their con­do­lences and sup­port to the vic­tims and community.
