On 06-05-2021 at 0000 hours, there was a large gathering at Seward Park that drew an estimated 1,000 people, mostly juveniles. The parking lot and side streets for blocks were completely filled with vehicles. During the course of the shift, we received two separate reports of shots fired in the park (no injuries, no scenes located), one assault (4 on 1), and two missing people (later found by patrol). Many of the attendants appeared to be underage and highly intoxicated. It appeared that a “rave” style party had been coordinated in the park as amplified music could be heard coming from the upper loop. Patrol attempted to get the people to leave the park and were mostly successful however as of the writing of this there were still an estimated 100 people in the park. Associated even numbers and times are as follows: 21-138505/ 2259 hours – 21-138527/ 2339 hours – 21-138544/ 2350 hours – 21-138593/0153
