It happened Monday at the Belfield Recreation Center at 21st and Conlyn Street in the Logan section of the city. Police say a 43-year-old man was shot multiple times in the neck, face and head. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 5:37 p.m.
Police say the playground is a known drug location but was filled with children at the time of the shooting because of the warm weather.
Investigators are searching for a man, around 5-foot-7, dressed in all black clothing who they say fled on foot after the shooting. They also say they have one witness.
