Several Pleasantville football players say they initially thought the gunshots were fireworks. When they realized it was gunfire, they ran through a fence to get to safety.

“We just saw everybody from the crowd running,” senior Pleasantville football player Keon Henry said. “Coach was telling us get down but we didn’t want to get down. We wanted to get somewhere safe inside the school, so we all ran up here, ran through the fence and then went through here.”

Police say several minor injuries were reported from people running away from the scene.

Police are currently interviewing several witnesses.

There is no word on any arrests at this time.
