Police confirmed that one person was killed and one was injured in a shooting during a Florida high school football playoff game Saturday in Orlando, Florida. Witnesses told authorities gunshots were heard in the parking lot of Jones High School, located near Camping World Stadium.
Orlando Police Chief Eric Smith told reporters: “There were two different groups, two different people at the event and got into whatever altercation they did. It’s part of our investigation to find out exactly what happened. We know shots rang out, two people were hit and fell.”
Smith said that both of the people involved are adults, adding that one died in the shooting while the other was taken to a hospital. Four juveniles have been taken into custody and police are still trying to identify the shooters.
Jones football coach Elijah Williams told the Orlando Sentinel: “It’s just an unfortunate situation… It’s real senseless. At that point we just wanted to keep both teams safe, our kids safe.”
