Tyler Police Department gives 4 of July warning

TYLER (KYTX)-The Tyler Police Department wants to remind people that fireworks and shooting guns are both prohibited in city limits. 

Tyler P.D. stresses that alcohol, smoking and shooting personal fireworks are prohibited in all city parks including Saturday's Lindsey Park fireworks show.

Celebratory gunfire, shots fired in the air, is also very dangerous.

"It's not only illegal, it's very dangerous. Rounds shot off in the air have been known to come down and go into roofs, they have been found in children's bedrooms and children's beds even," Detective Andy Erbaugh said.

The free City of Tyler fireworks show is at 9 P.M. on Saturday at Lindsey Park.

Tyler Police asks everyone to have a designated driver and be extra careful on the roads this weekend.
