After benches nearly cleared during the Northwestern (Miami) vs. Carol City (Miami Gardens, Fla.) high school football game, a fight in the stands that potentially included verbal threats sent people running in a panic, according to the Miami Herald.
Many in the stands dove under their bleacher seats for cover. Football players and reporters on the field laid down before the players were quickly ushered into the locker room.
There were no shots fired, Miami-Dade Police Department detective Lee Cowart told the Herald and ABC10.
Miami Sports Tribune reporter J.T. Wilcox tweeted that “some sort of negative activity took place in the stands” and he could not confirm if any gunshots were fired.
He also tweeted a picture of players laying on the ground.
