Man charged with firing gun at Pratt Park, no injuries reported

Prattville police say one man has been arrested following a shooting incident in a city park Sunday.

Prattville Police Chief Mark Thompson said officers responded to Pratt Park after receiving several calls related to shots being fired.

Upon their arrival, they found 20-year-old Trent Blackmon involved in a domestic situation with his ex-girlfriend.

Police say the alleged victim would not cooperate with the investigation, but witnesses at the scene reported only seeing Blackmon with a gun and firing one shot.

Blackmon later admitted to retrieving a weapon from his vehicle after he felt threatened and fired one shot.

Police say Blackmon has been charged with firing a gun in city limits and two counts of reckless endangerment.

Chief Thompson said the investigation is ongoing and more charges could be coming.

No one was injured in the shooting incident.
