"Unfortunately, around here it's not as uncommon as it sounds", Diego said. "The vicarious trauma that they placed upon kids and students at that game will be untold".

Panicked spectators and some of the players knocked down a fence in their haste to escape the confines of the field. Camden kids made their way across the field, toward their bench and ultimately to their buses. "We wanted to get somewhere safe inside the school so we all ran up here", said Keon Henry, a senior. In footage from the scene, players, coaches, referees and spectators could be seen running for cover, crying and yelling "Get down!"

Gov. Phil Murphy said Friday night was "a stark reminder that no community is immune from gun violence". "I am grateful for the lifesaving swift actions of first responders to tend to the wounded, and our prayers are with the victims for a swift and full recovery".
