Fist Fight Leads to To Gunfight At High School Football Game

You expect to hear cheers and whistles at high school football games, not gunshots.

Fist fight leads to gunfight at at Thursday's Marion-Franklin and Columbus Africentric Early College football game.

At least, that’s how it used to be, but not so much these days.

The latest incident unfolded Thursday night at Marion-Franklin High School, with the Red Devils hosting Columbus Africentric Early College.

Just before halftime, a fight broke out inside the stadium between three young men. The Columbus City Schools’ Safety and Security personnel defused the situation and escorted the brawlers out of the stadium.

Within minutes, around 8 p.m., gunshots rang out in the parking lot. No errant bullets hit a person, but they struck one vehicle.

CCS put the school in lockdown and canceled the game. The game, according to CCS, will be rescheduled.

Columbus Division of Police officers found several bullet casings but didn’t locate a weapon. At this time, there’s been no arrest.
