A SHOOTING erupted during the live broadcast of a high school basketball game as the crowd is seen running for cover.
Police have responded to Del City High School, confirming that shots were fired after the boy’s basketball game against Millwood High School.
A man was taken to the hospital, police said to KOCO.
His condition is unknown.
Shots were fired both inside and outside, police said.
Nobody is currently in custody.
The horrifying incident happened shortly after the game ended as fans and family members cleared the stands.
The game was streamed live on YouTube when the shooting took place.
At least two shots were heard as commentators took cover behind a table.
“We’re going to the break,” one of the commentators can be heard saying seconds after the shootout.
Screams were heard, followed by dozens of fans running after the two commentators, all captured on the live stream.
Minutes later, the commentators came back and said, “We’ve had a power surge, so we’re going to wrap this thing up here.”
Del City High School officials have released a statement confirming the shooting.
“Following the conclusion of the boy’s basketball game against Millwood High School, a fight ensued and shots were fired at the field house,” the statement begins.
“The Del City Police Department is on site and is investigating the incident.
“We have made the decision to switch to a virtual learning day for Wednesday 18th January. We will continue to update our families as more information becomes available.”
