Shooting During Tennessee High School Basketball Game Leaves One Person Dead

One person has been killed and at least three others injured in a shooting at a high school basketball game in Tennessee.

An altercation between two adults during a Humboldt High School versus North Side High School resulted in a shots being fired.

No students were involved in the altercation, and none of the injured or deceased victims are students, Humboldt City Schools said in a statement.

"We know of one who was deceased, and another was flown to The Med in Memphis and was in surgery last I heard," Humboldt Police Chief Reynard Buchanan told The Jackson Sun.

"And as time passed, we were notified of others who showed up at nearby medical facilities who were apparently also injured, but none of those injuries were life-threatening."

Buchanan said one person has been taken into custody, but has not been charged with anything yet. "He's in custody for investigative purposes," Buchanan added.

Agents and officers from other departments including the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Gibson County Sheriff, and Medina Police were also present at the school Tuesday night to assist with the scene.

"We appreciate the help of other agencies who assisted," Buchanan told The Jackson Sun. "They responded quickly and helped us keep a situation under control that could've gotten out of hand quickly and been worse than it already was."

The school said all classes and activities have been canceled for Wednesday in the wake of the shooting.

"An investigation by local authorities and additional information regarding the incident is forthcoming," the school added.

Humboldt Police have been contacted for further comment.

The incident occurred on the same day that three students were killed in a shooting at a school in Michigan.

The Oakland County Sheriff's Office confirmed that a 16-year-old boy, 14-year-old girl and a 17-year-old female were killed in the shooting at Oxford High School on Tuesday.

Eight people were also injured in the shooting, two of whom required surgery with the other six in a stable condition.

A 15-year-old sophomore student of Oxford High School was taken into custody and a handgun was recovered. The 9mm Sig Sauer had been purchased by the suspect's father four days prior to the incident at the school.

"Deputies confronted him. He had the weapon on him. They took him into custody," Undersheriff Michael McCabe, of the Oakland County Sheriff's Office, told reporters.

McCabe added that the shooting lasted around five minutes and the teenage suspect "did not give us any resistance" while being taken into custody.

"We don't believe anybody, at this point in time, pending further investigation, that he planned this with anybody else," McCabe said.
