A teenager was hospitalized after being shot during a high school football game in Rancho Cucamonga on Friday night.

The victim, identified only as a 16-year-old boy, was attending a game at Etiwanda High School, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. 

Deputies responded to reports of a large group of juveniles fighting in the street in front of the school around 8:23 p.m.

During the fight, an unidentified suspect fired gunshots, prompting the group of juveniles to run from the scene. 

Arriving deputies found the injured victim with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital where he remains in stable condition, authorities said 

The suspect fled the scene and remains at large. Authorities are seeking the public’s help in locating them.
