Final Score of High School Game Halted by Gunfire Tells New Story of Closure
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Scoreboards often tell a story and until Monday, the September 7th Hoover High School vs Des Moines North football game's scoreboard was frozen in time. "It was pretty frightening for me as a person," said North running back Meshack Wilson. It served as a backdrop to a crime scene after gunfire in a nearby parking lot struck fear in coaches, players and fans leaving the three point game at a standstill with just two minutes and fifteen seconds remaining. Hoover's football coach, Will Siffin said, "It's a lot bigger than just a game."
