Everyone was inspected before to entering Whitmer Memorial Stadium, according to the Washington Local Schools District. No one in the audience was wounded.
Kapszukiewicz stated that 16 off-duty law enforcement officers worked the game and were able to keep everyone safe.
“There is still much we do not know about last night’s events, but we do know this: what occurred in our city was inexcusable. Everyone should be able to safely enjoy a Friday night football game,’ he said in a statement.
The game, which Central Catholic won 45-15, was canceled and will not be rescheduled. According to Central Catholic principal Kevin Parkins, the junior varsity and freshman games on Saturday have also been canceled.
Parkins also declared that the student body would assemble on Tuesday morning following the holiday weekend to ‘speak to them, offer support, and pray’
Friday, he also urged others to “respect life.”
‘If we are irresponsible with lives – there is nothing more precious – we must continue to fight each and every day to ensure that the world, our nation, our state, and our community in Northwest Ohio recognize the value of life.
The inquiry by the police is underway.
