MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com)- For the second time in October, shots were fired near Raleigh-Egypt Football Stadium. This time, the gunfire stopped a game between Craigmont and East High before halftime.
Memphis police responded to the call but didn't find the shooter or a victim.
"We heard a couple of shots and the referees told everybody to get down,” said East High School Football Coach Marcus Wimberly. The game was suspended with about four and a half minutes left in the second quarter.
"Everybody's safety is the most important thing. They did the right thing by suspending the game," said Coach Wimberly. "There were a lot of security officers and they took care of the situation pretty quickly."
This isn't the first time shots were fired at the stadium. On October 7th, 2011, four people including three MCS students were arrested after a football game.
Maurice Wooten lives across the street from the stadium. He has four children and fears for his family’s safety. He wants parents to step up.
"Parents need to take care and discipline their kids at home," he said. “Hopefully it'll get better."
The game is re-scheduled for Monday at 5:00 p.m. at Halle Stadium in east Memphis.
