JEANNETTE, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a man was shot and killed outside of a western Pennsylvania stadium during the final minutes of a high school football game, prompting evacuation of the stadium.

Police say the shooting was reported at 9:20 p.m. outside the Park Street gate of McKee Stadium in Jeannette, where Jeannette and Imani Christian were playing.

The Westmoreland County coroner's office says 48-year-old Dameian Williams was pronounced dead at Ecela Westmoreland's emergency department. A suspect was arrested and faces homicide and reckless endangerment charges.

The game between Jeanette High School and Imani Christian was called with 3:41 left in regulation and Jeanette leading 48-0. Fans in the stadium were evacuated on the opposite side of the facility from the shooting, with no injuries reported.

Repeal 2A. US citizens prove hundreds of times daily that they are incapable of anything but mayhem when in possession of guns. There have been almost three hundred mass shootings so far this year.
