Four people have been shot and injured during a high school American football game in Alabama on Friday night (local time).
Players from Williamson and Vigor High Schools were on the field at the time of the shooting, according to Mobile Police chief Paul Prine.
The four people injured included three males and a female all under the age of 18. They werte all taken to the hospital with one in a critical condition.
Arrests have been made so but Prine says witnesses said two suspects left the scene in a white sedan.
"This type of gun violence is not going to be tolerated, and as the new chief, we will be very serious about it," Prine said, as reported by WKRG-TV. "If you’re involved in this in any way, you need to turn yourself in."
Early on Sunday morning (NZ time), police released a low-resolution photo showing three people, one in a dark sweatshirt with a large yellow logo, one in a purple shirt or jacket and one in a gray shirt.
Police provided no information on the shooters other than, "they're suspects in a shooting investigation".
Vigor High School coach John McKenzie took a philosophical response to the situation.
"These things happen and what can you do?" McKenzie told AL.com. "We've got to be an example and change these kids' lives that many are out here raising themselves."
A video posted to social media caught the moment the shots were fired that saw players on the sideline take cover and others were seen running off the field.
Vigor was leading 28-12 over Williamson with 5.49 remaining in the game before the shooting happened, according to AL.com.
