Officers patrolling Saturday afternoon's game between Chester-Upland High School and Oxford High School responded to the area and determined that no one was injured, officials said.
The City of Chester Police Department said responding officers found several cars and two buildings that were hit by gunfire. Investigators believe two people were shooting at each other and never fired in the direction of the football game.
"For the remainder of our home football games we will be supported by a stronger police presence," the district said. "We want our families and staff to feel safe attending our football games, and look forward to a positive season."
