DEL CITY, OKLAHOMA: A shooting appears to have started while a high school basketball game at Del City High was being streamed live on YouTube. Police were called to Del City High after the boy’s basketball game against Millwood High School and told that shots had been fired.
The audience heard two gunshots just as the game was about to end, and they began to run for cover. The shots came from a spectator in the crowd. The firing incident was also recorded because the entire match was being streamed live on YouTube. Fans could be heard screaming and running in a pack behind the two commentators as they took cover under the table in the video. There were more than 500 spectators in the stadium at the time of the incident, making it difficult to identify the offender.
Mass shooter who dropped a warning at a school in New York City said, “This is your last chance to flee.”
Over the bloody Christmas weekend, there were at least 14 gun deaths nationwide, including a 5-year-old boy.
