AT LEAST four shots have been fired during a high school American football game.
A high school football game between Vigor and Williamson erupted into chaos on Friday night after shots were fired “in the stands” according to a witness.
Local police are currently investigating the incident and have confirmed at least one person has received life-threatening injuries while many more were left with minor injuries.
A reporter from WKRG5 currently on the ground says around two dozen police cars arrived at the stadium to secure the perimeter.
Miska Barne, an onlooker at the stadium told WKRG: "The experience itself was horrible. Let’s pray for their families."
The Mobile police department said in a statement: "Multiple injuries have been reported, and those victims have been transported to the hospital. One individual has been transferred to the hospital with a life-threatening injury."
