Moped-Riding Gunman Opens Fire At Football Game, Pregnant Teen, 4 Others Shot In Dramatic Video

The wounded woman gave birth to a healthy baby by emergency C-section at the hospital, police say.

Five people were shot during a football game in Texas Sunday night, including a pregnant teen, police said.

The shooting started as a disturbance among attendees at a neighborhood game in Dallas, police said in a statement to Oxygen.com. Then a man got on a moped, drove onto the field and “opened fire on the crowd,” the statement said.

When the man opened fire on the crowd, “multiple people” within that crowd pulled their own guns and returned fire at the shooter on the moped, the statement added.

In all, police said five people were shot, including two women in critical condition, and another woman and two men in stable condition at a local hospital.

One of the wounded was a pregnant 17-year-old, according to 11/21 CBS DFW, the local CBS affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. She gave birth to a healthy baby after an emergency C-section, the station reported.  

The shootout happened in the Dallas neighborhood of Fair Park around 9:20 p.m. Sunday night, Dallas police said. Video posted to Twitter and Facebook captured the moment when bullets started flying.

The Twitter video is shot on the football field itself, by someone moving through the crowd just before the first shot rings out. People can heard arguing, but those people are not seen. Suddenly, a shot is fired, followed by others in quick, rapid-fire succession.

The camera operator falls to the ground and a woman starts screaming as shots continue to be fired. The video ends.

Video that had been posted to Facebook — but that has since been removed — captured the chaos from further back.

That video showed a large crowd of around 100 people milling around on the football field, before the distinctive pop-pop-pop of gunfire can be heard, as bullets begin whizzing through the air and more people start screaming. The gunshots last about 30 seconds.

When it ends a woman voice is heard in the video shouting, “We gotta go!”

There are no known suspects at this time, Dallas police said.
