George Livisaca, 26, was found and arrested in the 14800 block of Arrow Blvd in Fontana.

At 5:23 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, police responded to Jack Bulik Park located at 16581 Filbert St. 

Family members got into a fight at the park, and it escalated when a man allegedly brandished a gun and opened fire toward the fray, police said. 

Cellphone video captured the melee as people ran for cover. 

"When I heard the gunshot, I wanted to get them away from the kids," umpire Troy Matcham said. "All the kids were underneath the benches in the dugout. They were all crying, scared."

With children playing only feet away, a family fight leads to a shooting near a Little League game. Rick Montanez reports for NBC4 News at 11 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2019.

Parents said at first, they didn't realize what was happening, before everyone began to scatter. 

"Kids are in the outfield, infield, the dugout," said Fontana Police Officer Jay Sayegh. "That round could have went anywhere."

The woman who was hurt was taken to the hospital, where she was treated and released, police said.

Anyone with information on the shooting was asked to call Fontana Police Department Investigations Bureau at 909-350-7720 or Detective B. Miller 909-854-8148.
