BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – The father of a 24-year-old man who police said triggered a shooting at a Titusville park Saturday during a back-to-school event and peace rally told Channel 9 on Thursday that he wanted to apologize for his son.

Wayne Mitchell flew from North Carolina to Orlando Sanford International Airport, where he spoke with Channel 9’s Megan Cruz before visiting his son in a hospital.

The Titusville Police Department hasn’t identified the suspect yet, but Mitchell said it is his son.

“I just ask and pray that they forgive my son,” Mitchell said. “My son did do something wrong. He did come to that park, where there were babies, children and mothers.”

Witnesses told police the two men fought over the gun, which was fired about a dozen times.
