Authorities are seeking three or more suspects in connection with the deadly shooting, WKRG reported. No further information about them was immediately available.
In a statement Saturday, Escambia County High School Principal Dennis Fuqua expressed sadness that a day filled with triumph ended in tragedy.
"By day, our seniors experienced the high of obtaining $8.6 million in scholarships, and our varsity football team experienced their first win of the season," the statement read. "Yet, by night we all felt the pangs of tragedy due to the acts of violence that have left several of our past and present students injured. It is unfortunate that the event at the community center has tainted the success our seniors and football team felt, but we love our Blue Devil Family and will continue to pray for wisdom and healing."
