WEST VALLEY CITY — Shots were fired Friday evening near a football game being played at Granger High School, according to Granite School District officials.

No one was injured in the incident according to Ben Horsely, spokesman for Granite School District.

A few rounds were fired on campus during the late third quarter of the football game. While the shooting did occur on campus, it wasn’t at the football game, Horsely noted.

Officials said the shooting appeared to be gang-related and eight people were taken into custody in connection with the incident.

Horsely said it appears there was a fight or altercation and two rounds were fired. He added that most football game patrons were unaware of the shooting.

West Valley City Police Department and Granite School District police officers were on scene investigating, Horsely said. Granite police are leading the investigation, he noted.
