According to the Pocono Township Police Department, on June 6, 2022, at approximately 19:12 hours, Pocono Township Police responded to TLC park for a report of shots fired. Approximately 20 to 25 people were at the park, and most were playing basketball when a fight started. This fight led to a single shooter firing rounds from a handgun that disbursed the crowd.
