Three people were injured following a shooting after a high school football game in Orange County on Friday night.
According to the Times Herald-Record, Newburgh police say at least five shots were fired after a fight broke out in the parking lot of a game at the Newburgh Free Academy campus.
"Last night there was a shooting incident on the grounds on one our high school campuses, outside of the security perimeter for an event taking place," Newburgh Free Academy said in a statement on its website. "We are thankful for the quick and thorough response of our local law enforcement agencies and security personnel. At this time, there is limited information that we can provide as we wait for a thorough investigation to be conducted."
According to Newburgh Police Chief Anthony Geraci, a 43-year-old woman was shot in the foot, a 19-year-old woman was shot in the thigh and a 21-year-old man as shot in the ankle.
"We’re poring through video evidence, cellphone footage, eyewitness accounts and obviously the victims who are at the hospital so there is a lot of information coming in," Geraci said at the scene.
Investigators believe the shooting targeted certain individuals, but it was unclear whether any of the victims were among the intended targets, Geraci said.
Police say they believe the shooting was an isolated incident and no arrests have been made so far.
All campus activities scheduled for Saturday, October 1 have been canceled.
