Mobile Police Chief Paul Prine said during a media briefing outside the Lad-Peebles Sports and Entertainment Complex that two of the four victims were teenagers.
Prine said three men and a woman were taken to local hospitals, where one is in critical condition. The gender and age of the victim in critical condition were not disclosed on Friday.
Prine said police were working to identify the victims.
The football game between Williamson High School and Vigor High School “was paused and has since ended,” Prine said.
He said that no bullet was fired inside the stadium.
“The shot was fired on the western ramp,” Prine said. “It wasn’t shot in the arena or in the football field where the stands were, but it was here on the stadium exit ramp.”
Officials found four shelling cases in the area and believe that seven shots may have been fired, according to Prine.
“We have several individuals who are probably involved, but possibly just one shooter,” Prine said.
The police chief did not specify the reason for the shooting, but said that there was probably an altercation between the two men at the time of the shooting.
Prine called the shooting an isolated incident, noting that he did not believe there was any danger to the public.
Police received information that at least two men got into a white sedan and fled the spot after firing. Officers were engaged in locating them.
At the time of the news briefing, no arrests had been made, Prine said.
