MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) -- At least four people were hospitalized Friday after shots rang out at Ladd-Peebles Stadium, leaving one victim in critical condition and police searching for at least 2 suspects, authorities said.

The shooting happened about 9:56 p.m. during the Williamson-Vigor football game, causing chaos as spectators ran for the exits and the players were told to lay down on the field.

Two of those wounded are juveniles, according to Mobile Police Chief Paul Prine.

The gunfire broke out on the stadium's west exit ramp and least 2 suspects fled the scene in a white sedan, Prine said.

Five to seven shots were fired and police recovered at least four shell casings, Prine said.
