'Uncooked Food' Sparks Argument, Bullet at Alum Creek State Park

Updated: Thursday, July 31 2014, 01:52 PM EDT
DELAWARE COUNTY (Chelsea Spears) -- An argument over "uncooked food" at Alum Creek State Park led to a shooting on the campgrounds Thursday morning.

Officials with the Delaware County Sheriff's Office say no one was hit by a bullet that was fired at the park but that they have arrested two people for inducing panic and child endangering. Multiple children, ranging in ages from 6 to 12, were at the site when the bullets were fired, Sgt. Robert Spring with the Delaware County Sheriff's Office said.

Sgt. Spring says the gun owner had a gun license, but he was not the one who fired the shot.

Instead, Bryan C. Hoff is the person suspected of firing the gun. His wife, Amber J. Hoff, is charged with obstructing official business.

The married couple is in custody, but police say they were not fighting with each other. The argument was between several men, Bryan being one of them, according to police.

Police believe alcohol was a factor in the shooting.

The shot was fired around 9:45 a.m., the Delaware County Sheriff's Office said. The gun has since been recovered.

The Hoffs are currently being held in the Delaware County Jail.'Uncooked Food' Sparks Argument, Bullet at Alum Creek State Park
