Four people were shot during a high school football game in Alabama on Friday night.
Three men and one woman were taken to local hospitals, Mobile Police Chief Paul Prine told reporters outside the Ladd-Peebles Sports and Entertainment Complex, explaining one of the victims was in critical condition.
Two of the victims were juveniles, he added.
No shots were fired inside the stadium.
“The shots were fired on the west ramp,” Prine said. “It was not shot in the arena or in the football area where the stands were at, but it was here on the exit ramp coming out of the stadium.”
In another video, shot from the field, players can be seen lying on the field, taking cover.
Officers found four shell casings and believe there may have been as many as seven shots fired.
Cops are investigating whether the shooting stemmed from an altercation between two men.
“We have several individuals that may be involved, but possibly just one shooter,” said Prine.
