Horrific news just in. Four people have been shot at a high school football game in Alabama. 

The game between Vigor and Williamson High School came to an end abruptly when gun shots rang out. 

The shooting began just before 10pm when both teams were still on the field at the Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama. 

Two of the four people shot were minors. One of those shot is in critical condition. 

According to TMZ, it was initially unclear just exactly where the shots were fired from, however Mobile Police Chief Paul Prine later confirmed that no shots were fired inside the stadium but rather on the west ramp. 

Prine explained: 

Martin’s videos show players jumping to the ground for cover, while others sprint past attempting to flee. 

Just before the shooting began, Martin’s wrote: 

“TD @vigorhighschool leads @williamson_high 28-12 with 9:56 left in the Game.”

His next tweet was much more sinister, reading: 

“The field has cleared shots fired in the stands at the Vigor vs Williamson game.” 

Replying to Martin’s video, one viewer commented: 

“This is so sad. These kids are just trying to play a game, and someone has to ruin it for everyone. Why?”

Another commented: 

“Sad. Just pathetic.”

A third wrote: 

“This is ridiculous. These kids work so hard every week to prepare for game night, and some idiots ruin it for them. I’d like to take my family to a game sometime too, but that isn’t safe either.”

Truly shocking.
