Mobile police Chiefs Paul Prine said the shooting occurred near the exit ramp at Ladd-Peebles Stadium while players from Williamson and Vigor High Schools were on the field.
Prine said three men and a woman were wounded and two of the victims were juveniles.
Video posted on social media showed the chaotic scenes at the stadium when gunfire rang out. Players on the sideline hit the ground and others were seen running off the field. The game was eventually suspended.
The four victims were transported to the hospital. One was listed in critical condition.
No arrests were made in the incident. Prine said witnesses said two suspects left the scene in a white sedan.
“This type of gun violence is not going to be tolerated, and as the new chief, we will be very serious about it,” Prine said, attraverso WKRG-TV. “If you’re involved in this in any way, you need to turn yourself in.”
Vigor was leading 28-12 over Williamson with 5:49 remaining in the game before the shooting occurred, secondo AL.com.
“These things happen and what can you do?” Vigor coach John McKenzie told AL.com. “We’ve got to be an example and change these kid’s lives that many are out here raising themselves.”
