There was a high school football game between Leflore High School and Williamson High School at the stadium.
WKRG reports that witnesses said the game had already ended at the time of the shooting and there was a fight in the stands several minutes before the end of the game.
Police say they are questioning two people in custody but have not confirmed if they are the shooters.
Mobile Police Chief Lawrence Battiste asked “Why are the young people bringing this type of violence to public events. They’re bringing their beefs that they have with each other in their neighborhoods and they’re putting other people in harm’s way. ”
