NEW VIDEO: Fans, players run for cover during football game


MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — WKRG News 5 has obtained video of the chaos during a football game where 9 people were later shot. The video shows players on the field and fans in the stands running for cover. A witness tells us someone pulled out a gun during the 3rd quarter of the game. Players from LeFlore and Williamson high schools scatter and duck on the sidelines and in the bleachers.

You can also see fans lying down on the bleachers, trying to take cover. A small child in a Batman t-shirt is seen crying and running up the bleachers for safety.

Saturday morning a 17-year-old LeFlore student turned himself in for the shooting that occurred at the end of the game. Deangelo Parnell is charged with nine counts of attempted murder, according to a spokesperson for the Mobile Police Department. Police say it all started over a fight and Parnell started indiscriminately firing into the crowd. Five of the victims were listed in critical condition Friday night. But MPD did not have an update on conditions early Saturday other than to say some of the victims had been released from the hospital.
