On Friday, 4 individuals were shot at a high school football game in Oklahoma as frantic video showed players and spectators scurrying for cover.
It started to rain bullets around 10:15 p.m. at Choctaw High School’s Bill Jensen Field during an early-season rivalry game between the Choctaw and Del City, according to KOCO 5.
During a press briefing, Choctaw Police Chief Kelly Marshall disclosed that four victims had been shot, one of whom was a student.
Marshall added that she knew one younger, perhaps high school student received treatment.
The victim, who had a thigh wound, has been discharged from the hospital, according to Marshall.
Uncertainty persists over the three victims who remain.

Police stated they were unable to identify any suspects in custody but defined the shooter as a black male wearing a gray sweatshirt.
According to Marshall, three persons were held for interrogation.
During the chaos, a member of the Del City Police Department fired his gun, according to Del City Police Chief Loyd Berger.
Berger stated that he is aware that one of our officers was involved and used force. However, he is not really sure who he hit or if he hit anything.
When the shooting started, a police officer who wasn’t on duty stood guard nearby, according to Berger. At least 35 cops from several departments in the vicinity responded.
After the initial shots, the panic type came in waves. Just a scary scene, said reporter Mark Rodgers of The Sports Animal, who attended the game.
The horrific incident was captured on camera during the game’s live broadcast by Skordle.TV and shared on X, formerly known as Twitter. At the time of the shooting, Del City led Choctaw 35-25.
The video then shows players and spectators crammed into the stands running for safety.
On the pitch, players and officials can be seen scurrying for shelter.
As the sound of gunfire can be heard, the second announcer claims that there are people shooting.
The in-game announcer is heard asking spectators and players to get down in the stadium before the clip finishes as people there are shown to be in a panic.
Oklahoma City is 25 kilometers to the east of Choctaw High School.
