MOBILE, Ala. - There are reports of at least 10 individuals injured during a shooting at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.

Mobile Police Chief Lawrence Battiste told the media that at least 10 individuals from age 15-18 were injured during the shooting. He said the victims were transported to local hospitals. One of those injuries was the result of a seizure.

According to Mobile Fire-Rescue, at least five of those victims were in critical but stable condition.

A high school football game between Williamson and LeFlore High Schools had ended in a 10-0 victory for Williamson. 

Mobile County Public School System Director of Communication Rena Philips released the following statement: 

"It is sad that something like this happened at a high school football game, where our athletes were having a good game on the field. We do not know all of the details as this is a Mobile Police investigation, so we will have to refer all further questions to the MPD." 

Battiste said he's unsure at what point of the ballgame shots were fired. He confirmed that most of the injured individuals were on the LeFlore side of the stadium. 

Two people are currently in custody. Battiste said the incident was treated as an active shooter situation.
