VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — No gunshot victims have been located after reports of a shooting at Silverado High School in Victorville, officials confirmed.
Just before 8:40 pm, on Friday, August 12, 2022, VVNG received numerous tips from people at the football game for Varsity scrimmage night against Serrano High School reporting gunfire from the parking lot area.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez told VVNG the caller reported the game had just ended and several gunshots were heard in the parking lot area.
