ATLANTA (AP) - School officials say they plan to hire more off-duty police officers for security at an upcoming high school football game in Atlanta after a shooting outside a stadium left two people wounded.

WSB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1gbjQ7f) that the shooting happened Sept. 4, as Grady High School played Carver High at Grady’s stadium in northeast Atlanta.

Police say five to seven teens confronted Keiunte Wallace outside the stadium and opened fire. One bullet struck Wallace in the back, critically wounding him.

Police say two more bullets struck a passing car and wounded 52-year old Xuenjing Yu. Her injuries were considered minor.

Investigators said the group of teens made its getaway in a stolen Honda Accord, which was recovered later.
