A shooting at a high school football game in Jacksonville, Fla., on Friday night left one person dead and two injured, officials said. 

The shooting happened about 10 p.m. ET, 15 minutes after the game ended at Raines High School, where about 4,000 spectators attended, the Florida Times Union reported, citing Jacksonville authorities.
“The best information we have so far is that we have a single black male shooter, and we are working to get a more refined description.  During the game there were some disturbances and fights that took place as it was winding to a close, so we will be investigating whether or not that factored in to it. It’s just too early to say if that’s directly affecting this.” ~ Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office director Ron Lendvay
Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office director Ron Lendvay was joined by ATF agents at the scene, they confirmed that one young man was dead and a teenage boy and girl had been shot and were in stable condition at the hospital. He said about 4,000 people were leaving the stadium when the shooting occurred around 10 p.m. on a sidewalk outside the field near the school entrance.

Fox News reports that during the game some disturbances and fights took place among the spectators, but Lendvay said it was too soon to determine if those confrontations were related to the shooting.

“It was probably about 15 minutes from my staff leaving for the night. I would say about three-fourths of the stadium had already left, and the football team had just made it to the locker room. A lot of the individuals who were remaining were family members waiting on the players to get dressed to leave.” Jacksonville Local News

Police do not know the motive at this time and we pray for the family of the deceased and the two that were injured during the game.
