Two people were shot during a Palm Beach, Florida, high school football game Friday night.

One of the two victims was identified as Daniel Foster Sr., 39, the father of Daniel Foster Jr., a linebacker for the Dwyer High School team, who were the visiting side.

A helicopter later arrived and flew the victim to a hospital.

"This shooting WAS NOT a random act of violence", said the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. Their conditions are unknown.

Previous witness reports had indicated that about five shots were fired following a heated exchange between a group of students. Details on this remain under investigation.

All district outdoor activities, sporting events, and practices are canceled for the weekend, including third-party rentals of athletic fields, according to the school district.

The gender and age of the victims, as well as information about a suspect, had not been confirmed.
