“My understanding is we have several individuals involved, but possibly one shooter is what we know,” said Chief Paul Prine of the Mobile Police. “This type of gun violence is not going to be tolerated, and as the new chief, we will be very serious about it.”
Authorities are continuing to investigate the incident, which is far too familiar to a similar occurrence where nine people were shot in the same stadium back in 2019.
