No injuries were reported after a high school football stadium in Lake Charles, La., was evacuated in the fourth quarter of a game between Lake Charles College Prep and Kinder. 

KPLC 7 reported that police asked fans to leave the stadium as a precaution, and an announcement was made over the speakers in the stadium asking that fans evacuate.

Lake Charles police are now investigating the shooting, which took place near Cougar Stadium in the 1600 block of Second Street. Police could not confirm whether anyone was injured or if anyone is in custody.

No injuries were reported in relation to the evacuation of the stadium. 

At the time of the shooting Kinder led LCCP 21-12, but out of precaution, the game did not conclude on Thursday night. With the game being too close to determine an official outcome, the game will be resumed at a later date, but due to Hamilton Christian hosting Elton at Cougar Stadium on Friday night, Saturday is reportedly the likely date for when the game will resume.
