PHOENIX (AP) - New security measures are in place at a South Phoenix high school after shots were fired outside a gymnasium during a basketball game last week.

Cesar Chavez High officials added extra security guards at athletic events and school activities Monday.

At Monday night’s basketball game at the school, security guards plus a Phoenix police officer stood at the main gate and used a metal detector to check everyone going inside.

KTVK-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1k9cgdf) another set of officers ran a second sweep just outside of the gym area.

School officials say the increased security will remain in place through the rest of the basketball season. They are evaluating which security measures to have in place for the spring sports season.

Nobody was hurt last Friday night when gang members fired shots.
