Video shows Jax high school football players lying down on field prior to deadly shooting

There was some sort of "mischief" on the sideline that forced players and cheerleaders to lie down on the field.

A disturbance interrupted a William M. Raines High School football game in Northwest Jacksonville for the third year in a row. It remains unknown if the disturbance was connected to a fatal shooting that took place outside the stadium later that night.

Students on social media were saying they thought there might have been a shooting, but officials are calling it a disturbance, and the game continued as normal. Hours later as crowds left the stadium, shots rang out, killing one man and wounding two teenagers.

In 2017, a shooting scare caused a panic at the Raines vs. Lee game, and the year before that a grill exploded, delaying the game.
