Police investigating shooting outside high school football game in California

Police are searching for suspects after a shooting outside the football stadium in Selma, Calif.

According to police, the shooting took place on the street behind the press box with two cars shooting at each other.

The game was at halftime with Selma leading Coalinga 34-0 when the shots were heard. Resident Ken Robinson told The Fresno Bee that six or seven shots were heard in the area to the west of the stadium and then more shots were heard moments later.

Fans were moved to the field and the stadium was placed on lockdown while police helicopters flew overhead to search the neighborhood. The players were in the locker rooms at the time of the incident.

Fans eventually were able to leave through certain gates and the game was postponed.

No injuries were reported by police.
