By

Three men have been arrested and charged with possession of a firearm on school property following an incident during the Carol City-Miami Central football game Friday that caused mass chaos when gunshots were heard.

According to police, Larico Walker, 18, Kaion Lynch, 18, and Mark Trimble, 19, are facing charges. Walker and Lynch also are charged with third degree grand theft of a firearm and Trimble and Walker were charged with carrying a concealed weapon.

Miami-Dade schools police said they heard two shots fired in the parking lot outside the stadium.

According to reports, five people were taken into custody late Friday night, and a school spokesman acknowledged several people were questioned beyond the three charged.

Schools superintendent Alberto Carvalho tweeted Saturday.

The incident continues a trend of gun violence in that section of Miami. Johnny Lubin Jr., a 15-year-old student at Miami Northwestern, was shot and killed as he walked home from school Wednesday.

Players hit the ground and fans moved to the exits when the gunshots were heard.

Central was leading Carol City 36-8 with about three minutes remaining. The game was stopped and the stadium was cleared after the incident.
