TITUSVILLE, Fla. - An armed bystander shot a man who opened fired on a back-to-school event at a Titusville park after a fistfight, police said.

The shooting occurred at Isaac Campbell Park on South Street shortly after 5:20 p.m. when the shooter, whom police have not identified, returned to the park after a fistfight and began firing, investigators said.

A bystander, who was licensed to a carry a firearm, shot the gunman, police said. He was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.

The shootout happened at 5:20 p.m. Saturday as about 150 people – including dozens of children – played on the park grounds and listened to music. Witnesses said that the gunman, possibly involved in an earlier fistfight at the same event, came back with a gun, firing toward the crowd.

An unidentified vendor with a licensed, concealed weapon, drew his gun on the shooter who was running toward the crowd and rapidly returned fire. The unnamed shooter was wounded and later taken to Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne for treatment. The shooter’s condition was not immediately known Sunday.
