Violence broke out at a football match between two Mobile High Schools on Friday night when shots were fired from the stadium exit ramp, forcing players on the field to dive for cover.

Mobile Police Chief Paul Prine said during a media briefing: “The shot was fired on the west ramp,” adding: “It was not shot in the arena or at the football field where the stands were, but it was from the exit here.” But it was. The ramp is coming out of the stadium.”


Chief Prine said three men and a woman were taken to hospital, where one victim – whose age and gender were not released – remains in critical condition, with police working to determine the victims’ identities.

He said the football game was stopped and no shots were fired inside the stadium. He said he did not think there was any danger to the public.

Four shelling cases were found after the incident, and Chief Prine said officers believed seven shots were fired, reported CNN.

“We may have several people involved, but there is probably just one shooter,” said the police chief, adding that the two men were involved in an altercation at the time of the shooting. He did not specify a possible motive for the shooting.

There were reports that at least two men got into a white sedan and fled after that shooting.
