High School Football Crowd Flees Stadium Over False Report of Gunfire
Pandemonium broke out at an Arkansas high school football game Sunday as fans ran for their lives following what they believed was gunfire. More than 38,000 people had packed the War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock for the Salt Bowl. Police say the evacuation started in the third quarter when a fight broke out in the stadium’s concourse. “We received information that a stun gun was deployed," a police statement read. "At that point people attending the game thought they heard gunshots."
