A teen is facing a list of charges after police said he fired shots into a group at an Allentown park, then fled in a go-cart.
Allentown police responded to a call about a fight and shots fired at Jordan Park at 201 N Sixth Street Extension, right off Seventh Street around 2:15 p.m. Sunday.
Witnesses told police the suspect who fired the shots fled the scene in a go-cart.
