One person is hospitalized with a gunshot wound and another is in custody after a shooting in the parking lot of a Texas high school before a basketball game, authorities said Friday.
The shooting occurred around 6 p.m. in the Palestine High School parking lot before the playoff game between high school teams from Teague and Malakoff.
A group of teens told the Palestine Press-Herald they heard shots ring out and were told to turn back after returning from a nearby fast food restaurant. They saw a man fleeing the parking lot who they assumed was the shooter.
Palestine police Capt. James Muniz says the wound was not thought to be life-threatening, despite the person being shot in the head, according to KXAS-TV.
Palestine school district spokeswoman Suzanne Eiben told the Palestine Press-Herald that the shooting involved two men from Teague.
Muniz and Eiben said there was no threat to the public after the shooting. KLTV reported the playoff games will continue as scheduled.
The identities of those involved in the incident have not been released and charges have not been announced.
