Police think several cars drove through the back entrance gate after shots were fired just before 6 p.m. near a pavilion.

Police say they think the shooting was isolated which means no one else should be in danger.

Sharon Moore lives near the park and says she didn’t hear the gunshots but her son called with a warning. She says she immediately went inside, locked the doors, and set the house alarm.

“I felt like I was a prisoner in my own house because I was scared to go out,” said Sharon Moore.

Moore says she’s been going to this park for years and goes almost everyday with her brother. Now, she says she won’t go back.

“I don’t think I’d feel as comfortable going in there because you never know what’s going to happen now,” said Moore.

Another neighbor told ABC36 she’s a nurse who ran towards the park as soon as she the shots. She says she started doing CPR on the man who would later die at the hospital. The man is 25 year old Anthony Hendrix Jr. from Cincinnati.

“A tragedy like this is always hard to deal with,” said Captain Dustin Bowman, Frankfort Police Department.

Officers say they hope this won’t stop people from using the park.

Police say they are talking to witnesses and hope to close the case soon.
