A large crowd was on hand for what had been a friendly neighborhood football game when a "disturbance" broke out between several men, the Dallas Police Department said in a statement to ABC News Monday.

Citing witnesses, a man “walked up to the field then got on a moped and drove to the middle of the field when he opened fire on the crowd," the statement reads. "A witness stated that multiple people began shooting towards that shooter on the moped."
