High school football stars flee field in panic after shots fired: Video


High school football players were forced to flee the field after shots were fired at a game in Choctaw, Oklahoma.

According to the Oklahoman, Choctaw Police Chief Kelly Marshall confirmed police received a report of shots being fired by an unknown number of individuals at the game between Del City and Choctaw at around 10:30 p.m. Friday.

Local reports have claimed four people have been injured. Newsweek is working to verify this claim.

Videos taken from a live stream of the game and posted on X, formerly Twitter, show players standing on a pitch before gun shots can be heard, causing them to run.

“All I can tell you at this point is that a Del City officer was involved,” Del City Police Chief Loyd Berger said. “They were working security for that side of the game. Our officers will be interviewed by Oklahoma County.”

Newsweek has contacted Choctaw Police Department for comment.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
