A teenager was killed and another injured after a classmate opened fire at an Oklahoma high school homecoming football game Friday night, police said.
According to police and the school’s website, the violence erupted at Tulsa’s McLain High School during the juniors’ soccer game against Miami.
When police arrived around 10 p.m., they found a 17-year-old boy dead from gunshot wounds on the school’s tennis court, Tulsa Police Captain Richard Meulenberg told Fox News 23.
A second 17-year-old was taken to hospital in critical condition but has since improved and is now stable.
The school had been celebrating the end of its homecoming week, according to the school site, when the chaos unfolded.
The shooting suspect, who police believe is 17, fled the scene and was still at large early Saturday.
Wendell Franklin, Chief of Police for the Tulsa Police Department warned residents of Tulsa staying away from the high school and surrounding areas while police conduct investigations and deal with “potentially multiple” victims.
“We hope that out of the hundreds of people here, some will come forward and help with this investigation,” police said.
The murder marks the 60th of the year and the second of the day for Tulsa.
Camreion Williams allegedly shot and killed his stepfather early Friday morning and led police on a nearly nine-hour chase.
He was eventually arrested after hiding in a business center maintenance room.
