Gunfire erupted at a crowded soccer field during a match in Las Vegas on Saturday, wounding two women attending the game, local media reported.

The shooting took place at a public park during a men's soccer league game attended by 150 to 200 people, Nevada ABC affiliate 13 Action News reported, adding that police said shots were fired toward the field from over a wall.

The women were being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, it added. A Las Vegas police spokesman did not immediately respond to calls requesting comment.

4. Locking.

The hosts have had a discussion about local stories involving "guns taken to schools".
After some internet searching, it seems that this is happening all over the US.
Our decision is that if it is in a local paper then it is a local story and not news of national interest.
If we had posts about every incidence, LBN would be inundated with these types of articles.

Please feel free to post in the Nevada group or GD as long as gun stories are allowed.

Thanks for understanding.
