KANSAS CITY, Mo. — No one was injured when gunfire rang out during a football game at Wyandotte High School in Kansas City, Kansas, on Friday night.

Just before 9:30 p.m., two individuals who weren't at the game approached a gate at the stadium and began opening fire at a Kansas City, Kansas, Public Schools police officer, according to the KCK Police Department. KCKPS has its own operating police department.

The officer returned fire, causing the suspects to flee the scene to the north in a vehicle. KCKPD spokesperson Thomas Tomasic said there was about one minute left in the game when gunfire was exchanged.

Nobody was struck by gunfire, according to KCKPD.

KCKPD responded to the scene at around 9:24 p.m. at the request of the KCKPS Police Department, Tomasic said.

Tomasic said "several" shots were fired but couldn't immediately say how many.

No suspect was in custody Friday night and it wasn't clear what prompted the suspects to shoot.
