The spectators and even the referee in the officiating of the game was to lie flat on the field, in order to avoid being hit by gunfire.

Camden coach Dwayne Savage also gave his account of what happened.

“They were punting the ball, and the ball is rolling on the floor when we heard the shots fired from the house,” Savage told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “The players started jogging off the field. I threw myself on the ground, and a number of other coaches and players. We need everyone to get on the bus as quickly as we could, and we left the house. We have heard of as a child and an adult have been killed or wounded.”

After the shooting, the suspects fled, said to be the scene of a car-the Absecon police department in Atlantic City, nj. The police also recovered a firearm from the scene, the prosecutor said.

“I want to thank the pleasantville Police Department, and scores of off-duty personnel of the emergency services who helped the victims and helped in the enforcement of the law in a timely fashion to identify and locate those responsible for the cause of chaos and the pleasantville High School football game,” Tyner said. “The hall is just a opportunity for the criminals to create their own form of revenge against each other. Our community will not be held to ransom by a few lunatics intent on the danger to our own safety and the safety of our children.”
