Guns continue to be a problem around the country and this time it happened where kids should feel safe.
Gunfire erupted at a youth football game at Oakland Tech High School that sent peopel scrambling for their lives. When the dust settled, a 6-0year-old girl and two others would be shot.
Footage has since emerged of the aftermath:
According to NBC Bay Area, a dispute in the stands erupted in violence as a 6-year-old, a woman in her 50s and a man in his 30s would be taken to a hospital. All the victims are expected to survive.
In a message penned to parents and community members, the Oakland Dynamites said, “As staff at OD we try to create a fun festive environment for our children to play football and cheer. We can’t control these knuckleheads, but we can improve and try to take better security measures at the field. Unfortunately, this was some street beef that spilled onto the football field.”
Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong said the department was “saddened by this blatant disregard for life that occurred yesterday as individuals showed a complete lack of compassion for young people out there participating in the peewee football game.”
The Oakland Dynamites condemned the “senseless violence” and said the matter points to a wider issue plaguing the city.
