"Three to four shots:" Police and MPS staff secure Custer Stadium after reports of shots fired

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Rufus King High School homecoming game against Riverside University High School was paused at the end of the first half when there were reports of shots fired Thursday night. 

“I heard three to four shots and then immediately after was there was screaming," Don Thomas said, who lives near the stadium. 

Milwaukee Police were seen on video responding to 44th and W Fairmont Avenue, just outside the stadium. 

According to Milwaukee Public Schools, the staff on site secured the stadium and police were already present during the game. MPD said no action was taken at the stadium and no one was hurt.. 

The game later resumed. 

Less than 24 hours later, James Madison played Pulaski at Custer Stadium. 

Terri Young's granddaughter is a cheerleader for Madison and noticed there not as many people in the stands for the homecoming game. 

“The weather may play a part but I think what happened last night plays a factor in what the turnout is today," Young said. 

Milwaukee Police were seen patrolling the area at the Madison and Pulaski game. 

“I do give them credit that they have presences at every games and I pray that they up that because at the end of the day these are peoples lives," Thomas said.
