Gunfire injures 4 people at school football game

SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) — Gunfire erupted during halftime at a middle school football game on Wednesday afternoon, wounding two teenagers and two adults, police said.

The four were taken to hospitals for treatment, said police Lt. Brian Lipe.

A 16-year-old boy was shot in the neck, Detective Sgt. Brent Vanderhaar said, but he said he had no information on the conditions of the teen or the other victims. He also would not say whether the boy had been targeted by the shooter, but he did say the other victims apparently were innocent bystanders.

No arrests had been made, but police had one person in custody being questioned as a "person of interest," Vanderhaar said.

The injured teenagers were not students at South Middle School, where the shootings took place.
