At least 10 people shot at high school football in Alabama

Officers said the threat may have been directed to one or two people, and others "just happened to fall prey to their carelessness". It was unclear if the other three victims suffered gunshot wounds or other injuries.

Police are questioning witnesses as they continue to investigate the shooting. News outlets report the teenager surrendered Saturday morning.

Battiste added on Saturday that his department's investigation was still in early stages. A motive for the shooting was not immediately known.

The game was between LeFlore High School and William High School, WPMI-TV reported, and most of the injured were on the LeFlore side. Battiste additionally requested "those family members that had knowledge or have knowledge that may cause people in our community harm" to come back ahead with knowledge.

Mobile's Police Chief could not tell WKRG-TV if Parnell had a criminal record as a juvenile.

When asked whether the city would consider installing metal detectors at stadiums, Stimpson said, "We're going to consider everything".

Battiste said the shooting stemmed from a fight, and the suspect pulled a gun and started "indiscriminately shooting". "We all need to do a better job to prevent these types of incidents ...we need people to step forward".

Tougher security measures will soon be in place at public-school sports events in Mobile, Ala. "As a community, we have to get the guns out of the hands of our youth".
