Shots fired outside Phoenix school; no one hurt
Question of the Day
PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say several gunshots were fired Friday night outside a Phoenix high school as a basketball game was going on inside, but no one was hit.
Police spokesman Steve Martos confirmed that there were no injuries as a result of the gunfire, but he did not release other details.
The Arizona Republic reports (http://bitly.com/1fGSEro ) that police said up to 15 shot were fired near Cesar Chavez High School in southwest Phoenix.
The paper reports that hundreds of people had been attending the boys varsity game, and students said the gym was evacuated.
Lt. Tom Van Dorn says the police gang squad was investigating, and officials are looking for three people.
He says that though no one was shot, paramedics evaluated three people for other medical conditions.
At least a dozen police cars remained parked outside the high school with lights flashing later Friday night as a police helicopter circled the area.
