"Our detectives are investigating this incident to identify and to appropriately charge those individuals involved," the city’s public safety director Anthony Ambrose told the news outlet. "Because high school students are typically juveniles, the names of the suspects will not be released. But those found to have participated in this senseless act of violence will face criminal charges."

There are no reports of any arrests so far.

"I spoke to the superintendent, principal, coaches and team," Newark Mayor Ras Baraka told the news outlet.

"The actions of these students will not be tolerated, and they don't represent the majority of the school. The school and team have many great kids, who go on to college and do great things, and we're proud of them. We support the superintendent and principal and will do whatever we can to make the rest of the year successful."
