ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — St. Paul police say adults fighting on the sidelines of a children’s football game prompted its cancellation after someone fired a gun.

The Pioneer Press reports no one was injured at the game Thursday night between St. Paul Frogtown Football and North Area Titan Football outside the West Minnehaha Recreation Center. The teams were in a tournament for 9-and 10-year-olds.

Police arrested a 27-year-old man connected to the incident and recovered a gun, but it’s unclear what charges he faces.

Witnesses told police someone fired a gun after adults at the game got into a fight. Police say they received conflicting accounts about where the shot was fired. Some reported a shot being fired in the air, while others said someone fired into a crowd.

Officers found one spent casing on the field.
