GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

A shooting at a Gulfport sports complex Tuesday afternoon sent students scattering. Video showing the aftermath of the incident was posted on Facebook and sent to WLOX. 

Police say they received a call that a firearm was discharged during a fight at Goldin Sports Complex shortly before 4:30 p.m. When patrolmen arrived, authorities say they saw a large group of people. A search of the area revealed a handgun, which Gulfport Police seized as evidence.

(WARNING: Video contains graphic language.)

Police say they were not aware of the Facebook video until WLOX called to ask about it, but they are now reviewing it. 

At this time, nobody has been arrested and no charges have been filed.
