Miami high school game ends after gunshots heard in distance

A high school football game in Miami ended early after gunshots were heard in the distance, sending players and coaches ducking for cover.

Videos show terrified fans in the stands screaming and running to the exits when the gunshots were heard at Friday’s game. Coaches told players to get down on the field.

Less than three minutes remained when stadium officials called the game between Miami Central and Miami Carol City high schools at Miami-Dade College North’s campus. Central beat Carol City 26-8.

Miami-Dade Schools Police Officer Hilda Hernandez said three males have been arrested in the shooting. Authorities did not release what charges Larico Walker, Taion Lynch and Mark Trimble face or what prompted the shooting, but said they recovered three firearms.

Central football coach Ronald Smith said afterward, “You hate to see anything like that happen, but luckily it seems like no one was hurt.”
