No injuries were reported, but the incident sparked a mass exodus - one organizer called it a stampede - from the area.

I was actually right near the incident, and I'm pretty sure that a teenage boy was shot, although I couldn't see much with all of the people running away from the scene. I was standing near the "Sand Art" stand, where an older woman was making sand art in wine glasses.

I was also at the fair. No one was hit and the shooter is in custody. This comes from a direct contact with one of the officers that was taking statements and assisting with the arrest of the shooter.

We were beside the goldfish/Tilt a Whirl and saw the kid running for his life and heard the gun shots. Feel like we were robbed of our money-more than $100 for bands/tickets-as we fled with the other 100 people, after being there 30 minutes-at least we got out alive-My 2 kids will surely remember it-remember crying and running from the shooter at Bayfest-good times-STUPID PLACE TO WASTE YOUR MONEY AND PERHAPS YOUR LIFE!

Bad P.R. for Corpus Christi, but a shooting a day is typical for the former "sparkling city by the sea."
