A man was shot in the leg at a park in Fremont on Thursday evening, police said. Officers responded at about 7:45 p.m. Thursday to a report of a shooting at Los Cerritos Community Park in the 3300 block of Alder Avenue. Witnesses attending a baseball game in the park said they hard several shots fired and a group of men fighting, police said.

No suspect information was immediately available from police, who said they are investigating whether the incident was gang-related.
