Shots Fired During Youth Football Game

Palmetto, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-Twenty three year-old Dario Lazier and two juveniles have been arrested after a shooting outside the Palmetto Youth Center on 17th Street, West.

Police say it all started when a car stopped in front of the center as a youth football game was underway.  Two people then got out of the car and fired at some people in the parking lot. The shots missed the people, but hit a car and a tree.

Police officers working security at the game spotted the car speeding away and called other officers. Manatee deputies got involved when the pursuit went into Bradenton. Deputies used stop sticks to end the chase in the 1600 block of 26th Avenue, East.
