The shooting occurred on Wednesday night at Catawba College in Salisbury, North Carolina. The venue had been hosting a tournament featuring high school teams from across Rowan County. The shooting broke out at 8:10 p.m., around halftime during a game between West Rowan and North Rowan.
According to police, the incident began with a physical altercation between the two suspects near a concession stand in the lobby.

As COVID-19 surges nationwide, schools are reflecting the high rates of transmission. From shutting down in March 2020, to reopening and trying to stay open, the task has been varied and in some cases monumental.
Neither victim had been involved in the altercation, and no other injuries were reported. All children at the event were accounted for once the area was cleared out. The school was put under a shelter-in-place order while authorities investigated, and further games in the tournament were canceled. Roughly 400 people were reported to be in attendance at the game.
"Everybody ran into the gym and stampeded each other," radio announcer Zach Tucker told local station WBTV. "We did the best that we could to just hide and just ride things out."
Following an investigation into the incident, police were able to identify two juvenile suspects and obtain secure custody orders for their arrests. They are currently being held at Stonewall Jackson Youth Development Center in Concord, North Carolina.
