One person was stabbed after a fight broke out at Gately Stadium Friday, halting the Simeon-Morgan Park football game, and eye witnesses and a police source said shots were possibly fired.
Loud noises and flashes of light could be seen coming from the Morgan Park stands, according to a Sun-Times reporter who was at the game at 800 E. 103rd. A police source told the Sun-Times a large fight broke out at the game and said officers responded to reports of shots fired.
“We were just cheering for our team, and then the next thing we knew
we heard something,” said Suzy Hilton, 15, a Simeon ninth-grader. “I saw [a flash of] light. We heard a gunshot. And everybody just ran and we had to duck down under the benches. It was real scary. … I was very afraid.”
