Multiple shots were fired during a JV football game at Lumberton Senior High School in North Carolina on Wednesday night.
Police responded to a call of reported gunfire at Lumberton Senior High School football stadium. Footage shows the chaos that erupted after that gun fire could be heard.
At the end of the video, a student can be heard shouting, “Get down, Mr. Weller!” and then seen pulling a man to the ground.
Officers found a 41-year-old woman with a gunshot wound in the parking lot at the front of the stadium. She was airlifted in critical condition. Witnesses say they heard multiple gunshots and described the suspect as wearing black clothing.
School board member Tre Britt posted on Facebook: “Prayers for the senseless situation that happened at LHS tonight at the conclusion of the PSRC middle school football championship. The football players from Lumberton Junior & St. Paul’s Middle worked hard to reach that stage and they will be recognized for their efforts with a trophy presentation. They deserve that moment and it’s already in the works!”
The victim’s name is being withheld at this time in the investigation.
