Gunfire rang out in the stands during a football game between Vigor and Williamson high schools, according to reports.
At least four people were injured, one of them seriously after a gunman opened fire at a high school football game at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama, according to BNO News.
Witnesses reported to US broadcaster Fox News that they'd suddenly heard gunshots in the final minutes of the game between the Vigor and Williamson teams.
"Multiple injuries have been reported, and those victims have been transported to the hospital. One individual has been transferred to the hospital with a life-threatening injury," the Mobile police department said in a statement.
Videos of the incident circulating online show people leaving the stadium.
The football game that was on at the time of the shooting was stopped. The Mobile Police Chief Paul Prine said that the police think several people were involved but only one person was carrying out the shooting.

Prine noted that the police have information that following the incident, at least two people fled the scene in a white sedan. Their identity and location is being established.
Panic broke out among the spectators and the players. It is currently unclear who the shooter was. The police are currently looking for the perpetrator.
Emergency vehicles and police are working at the scene of the crime.
In 2019, nine people were shot at the same venue, Ladd-Pebbles Stadium. A 17-year-old was charged with attempted murder.
