BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Two days after the mass shooting at MLK Park in Buffalo, Thomasina Pritchet says she has no problem taking her grandchildren there to play just feet from the shooting scene.

"I'm going to keep coming back cause I'm a good grandmother and I'm going to watch them and protect them and I'm going to keep bringing my grandchildren," she said.

Police and city officials said the shooting, which sent five people to the hospital, was not random.

It happened at Pavilion 4 just after 8:30 on Saturday night.

The gunmen shot into a crowd of people.

"I think that this park is very safe," said Councilman Darius Pridgen. "This is one incident in which I believe a knucklehead made a horrible mistake coming to this area."

"The police are working very aggressively, they have been working around the clock and we intend to bring this coward to justice for their actions," said Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown.
