Police say a man was shot and killed at Lincoln Terrace Park Tuesday and that they are still looking for the suspect who pulled the trigger.  
Police say it happened a little before noon. They say a 27-year-old, who has not been identified at this time, was shot in the head and chest. 
The crime scene unit and medical examiner combed through the scene looking for clues.  A friend of the victim, who did not want to speak on camera, tells News 12 he was hanging out at the park with the victim around 10 a.m. 
The friend tells News 12 he then went to an appointment and that when he returned he saw officers running toward the scene. 
Community advocates say they are frustrated with the recent violence seen across the city.
“If our kids are not safe in the park where they have a right to play, where are they going to be safe?” said community advocate Michael Thomas. 
Friends tell News 12 the victim has a young son who lives out of state.
