A 28-year-old man is wanted on a murder charge following a fatal shooting earlier this month at East Frankfort Park.

Frankfort police have issued an arrest warrant for Justin L. Cromer for his involvement in the death of 25-year-old Anthony Hendrix.

Two others were also injured in the shooting, which occurred Sept. 2 at the Frankfort-owned park. When Frankfort police arrived, they found Hendrix in the back of the park with gunshot wounds and took him to Frankfort Regional Medical Center, where he died, Frankfort police previously said in a statement

A man who heard the shooting, Steven Redmon, told the State-Journal it was a chaotic scene. He told the newspaper the shooting occurred at a gathering with about 100 teenagers or college-aged people.
