A suspect opened fire at a city park splash pad in Oakland County, Michigan, injuring nine people, including two children, in an apparent random shooting, authorities reported.

The shooter, identified as 42-year-old Michael William Nash, drove up to Brooklands Plaza Splash Pad on Saturday, exited his vehicle, and began firing a semiautomatic handgun, reloading at least twice, according to Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard. The victims ranged in age from 4 to 78.

An 8-year-old boy was critically injured after being shot in the head, while a 4-year-old boy was hit in the thigh and stabilized. A 39-year-old woman with abdominal and leg injuries was also in critical condition. These three victims are related. The remaining victims, aged 30 to 78, including a husband and wife and a city employee, are stable.

Nash fled and later killed himself at a home in Shelby Township. Deputies tracked him using a handgun found at the scene and SWAT discovered his body after breaching the home.

Bouchard noted the suspect may have had mental health issues. The tragic event occurred on a crowded day at the splash pad, recently reopened after maintenance, and just before Father’s Day.

Rochester Hills Mayor Bryan K. Barnett described the incident as particularly harrowing for the suburb near Detroit. The county previously experienced a mass shooting at Oxford High School in 2021, where a teenager killed four classmates using a semiautomatic handgun purchased by his father.
