1 person dead after shots fired at Florida high school football game, deputies say

One person was killed at a Florida high school football game as the contest ended Friday night, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office confirmed.

>> Read more trending news 

In a tweet late Friday, the Sheriff’s Office said one person died and two were injured after a game played between host William M. Raines High School and Robert E. Lee High School.

The Sheriff's Office said early Saturday that one male and one female were shot and transported to hospitals, while one young male was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The victims’ names had not been released as of early Saturday.

Deputies estimated that 4,000 people attended the game, which was the season opener for Raines.  Around 3,000 fans had left by the time the shooting began, the Sheriff’s Office said.

"With the amount of people there, we should have many witnesses," a sheriff’s spokesman said. 

There were several fights and disturbances during the football game, according to the Sheriff’s Office, and officials said they will be looking into those to see if there are any connections to the shooting. 

Deputies said the shooting occurred up and down the sidewalk -- between the stadium and the school entrance -- around 10 p.m. Officers at the scene found three victims with gunshot wounds. One victim, a young adult male, died at the scene. Rescue transported two others to the hospital.

Federal authorities are assisting JSO in the investigation. A search is on for a single shooter, authorities said.

Duval County Superintendent Diana Greene said officials were still in the process of gathering information and will release a statement later.

Greene did say, however, that the incident was a “very troubling reflection” of what's happening in the Jacksonville community. 

This is not the first time there has been an incident at a football game between the two schools. 

A 20-year-old was shot after a 2012 game at Raines High School.

This is a developing story.

Dad of late ex-Ohio high school football player sues helmet makers

The father of a former Ohio high school football player who died in 2016 after a seizure led to his drowning has sued the manufacturers of helmets worn by Cody Hamblin.

>> Read more trending news

Darren Hamblin alleges in a suit filed in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court that Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) suffered by his son while he played at Miamisburg High School led to seizure and death.

The suit names Riddell Sports Group and the parent company of Schutt Sports as defendants. The plaintiffs allege negligence, product liability, negligent misrepresentation, fraud and wrongful death.

Cody Hamblin, 22, died May 29, 2016, in Fayetteville, Ohio, when he was fishing during Memorial Day weekend with his grandfather. He had a sudden seizure while on a boat, fell overboard into the water and died within a minute, according to the suit.

CTE is only determined by postmortem analysis, and an autopsy was performed on Cody Hamblin on June 30, 2016, the suit said.

The court document claims that Hamblin played football from 2001, when he was 8 years old, until 2011 and that he developed brain and neurological damage while using those companies’ helmets.

The lawsuit alleges that the plaintiffs “did not know the long-term effects of repeat brain injuries, subconcussive hits and cumulative brain trauma and relied on” the defendants to protect them.

“Upon information and belief, there are no specific safety standards for youth sports,” the suit alleges. “In other words, (the companies’) ‘safety standards’ utilized in the design and manufacture of their tackle football helmets fail to differentiate between adult tackle football participants and children tackle football participants, despite the drastic and varying differences between the two.”

“Children possess unique features and vulnerabilities not possessed by fully developed, exceptionally fit adult athletes,” the suit said.

In addition, the suit said children are more vulnerable to head, neck and brain injuries than adults because youth football players’ heads and brains are disproportionately large compared to the rest of their bodies.

The suit cites design defects and that the companies failed to provide necessary and adequate information and made misrepresentations about their products.

The defendants have not yet filed an answer in court.

Texas transgender wrestler wins second straight state title 

A transgender wrestler from Texas successfully defended his Class 6A girls championship Saturday night, WFAA reported

Mack Beggs, from Euless Trinity near Dallas, improved to 36-0, capping his season with a 15-3 victory against Chelsea Sanchez of Morton Ranch High school. Beggs, 18, also defeated Sanchez last season in the 110-pound division, WFAA reported.

Last year, a parent filed a lawsuit to prevent Beggs from wrestling in the female division.

Beggs began transitioning from female to male a few years ago by using testosterone, which was the reason the lawsuit was filed, WFAA reported. But according to the Texas University Interscholastic League, it is not a banned substance since it comes from a physician.

A state law passed in 2016 says that athletes must compete as the gender listed on their birth certificates, WFAA reported.. 

Marco Karem, Beggs’ father, told WFAA that his son’s achievement was an inspiration.“He inspires a lot of people, and if he can help just one person -- then it’s worth it to Mack,” Karem said.

Mack Beggs heard several boos and jeers during the state final but shrugged it off, WFAA reported.

"I don't care, I gave my all in that match," he said. "You put me in front of anybody and I'll wrestle them.

"Each time I read comments, they all say the same thing about steroids. It all comes down to technique and who has the most heart."

Beggs is considering a men’s wrestling scholarship in college and is hoping to schedule a time for his “top surgery” by a doctor in Plano, The Dallas Morning News reported. 

He also wants to train for the Olympics. Both the NCAA and the Olympics have rules in place that allow athletes to compete as the gender they identify with, WFAA reported.

They face disorderly conduct charges.

Clairton police released details about the Feb. 6 brawl at Clairton High School between Clairton and Monessen.

Police said it began as a fight between two players and escalated from there.

Eight teenagers and four adults are charged. All are from Clairton and Monessen, police said.

In a news release, officers said they offered victims a chance to come forward to sort out who was involved in the fight, but no one did, so they used surveillance video to figure out who to charge.

The charges come after WPIAL officials decided to suspend players who left the benches for one game and put both schools on unprecedented five-year probations.

Monessen is appealing that decision.

The state wrestling tournament will be in Cypress next week. Beggs is 29-0 this season and hopes to defend the state title he won last year.
