PHOENIX (AP) - Phoenix city and school officials are trying to allay parents’ concerns in the wake of recent gunfire outside a high school.

Nobody was injured in the Jan. 30 shooting outside Cesar Chavez High School during a basketball game.

Police say their investigation continues but that they suspect the gunfire was related to rival gang members who had a chance encounter.

Tightened security procedures put into place at the school since the shooting include weapons checks of people visiting the campus for sports contests or other public events.

The city has announced it will give the district with money to hire additional school resource officers.

School officials say there was talk of social media posts about possible upcoming trouble at the school but that hasn’t been documented.
