Toledo Public Schools to discuss safety after football game suspended by gunfire

In the aftermath of a Toledo high school football game halted by gunfire Friday, school officials this week will discuss safety issues and the fate of the suspended contest.

Talks will include the principals and athletic directors of Woodward and Rogers high schools and Superintendent Romules Durant and his cabinet, said Patty Mazur, Toledo Public Schools spokesman.

The football game was tied 6-6 early in the fourth quarter at Woodward when the field and stands were evacuated to the shelter of the school building. Officials will decide whether play resumes or the tie stands, Ms. Mazur said.

Shots were heard just after 9 p.m., and a police shot spotter device detected gunfire near the North Toledo school in the 600 block of East Central Avenue.
