At least six people were injured after a fight at a sports center about 80 miles outside Philadelphiaprompted a mass incident Sunday afternoon. Diane E. Garber, Emergency Services Coordinator for East Hempfield Township, confirmed that less than a dozen people were injured from being trampled after multiple people tried to leave the building in a "chaotic manner."
East Hempfield Police responded to a call at 2:22 p.m. for reported gunshots at a basketball tournament inside the complex. Police said that a fight broke out during one of the basketball games, and several people reported hearing a gunshot. But no witnesses saw a gun, and there were no victims of gunfire, according to police.
"Again, no shooting victims; the only injuries that occurred were due to the chaos of hundreds of people leaving the facility," Garber said. "People quickly helped other people get help, people quickly left the facility, at this point there is no reason for the community to feel any concern." East Hempfield PD said six people were transported to hospitals and several others were treated on-scene. The injuries are non-life threatening.
