    The police of Hammond, Indiana, where the tragedy took place, and immediately opened an investigation.

    “I don’t understand what goes through the minds of the people who are firing in the air? Do they think that the ball disappears into the atmosphere?”, took the mayor of Hammond, and close to the family of Noah, Tom McDermott, Jr.

    “This ball can come from anywhere. It’s like being struck by lightning! This is a terrible tragedy and I hope that we can find the culprit.”
