Pregnant woman among those shot during Texas football game shooting
It’s been reported that five people were injured this weekend during a football game. The people were shot while standing on the football field.
According to Fox 4, two people pulled out guns during an argument and started shooting at each other. It hasn’t been yet determined if the five people were targets or if they got caught in the crossfire.
Dallas police said two people opened fire at around 9:30 p.m. on Sunday at the Juanita Craft Recreation Center. At the time there was a neighborhood football game in progress.
A Facebook video posted (but later deleted) showed a large crowd gathered on the field before gunfire could be heard. Five people were injured including a pregnant woman
The woman was shot in the chest. Before she was taken to the hospital, police applied a special bandage designed for chest wounds.
She had an emergency C-section to save the baby. The baby survived, but the woman remains in critical condition as of Monday morning.
Another woman suffered a gunshot wound to the head and she’s in serious condition at the hospital.
Three men suffered bullet wounds to their legs. Police applied tourniquets to two victims before ambulances arrived.
Authorities said it was unclear whether any of the victims were deliberately targeted or simply caught in the crossfire. It’s also unclear what the motive for the shooting was.
Those responsible for the shooting were still at large.
