SOUTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV.com) -

Police are still searching for three suspects who shot a man at Bayless High School during a basketball game Friday night.

Police say the three suspects entered the gym just after the game started and confronted the victim inside the lobby. It's unclear what the confrontation was about.

At some point, one of the three suspects displayed a gun and fired one shot, grazing the victim. The victim sustained non-life threatening injuries.

Officers at the school chased the suspects, but the suspects ran out of the building, got into a car and escaped.

After the shooting, everyone in the gym was ushered outside. The basketball game was canceled.

The school later released this statement:

A single gunshot was fired at Bayless High School in the gym lobby after 7 PM this evening, just after the start of the boys' basketball game. One individual was injured. The scene was secured by the authorities and fans were evacuated from the gymnasium. St. Louis County Police (School Resource Officers) were on campus at the time of the event and were able to immediately respond to the situation. Police are now searching for the suspect who fled the scene. At this time, we do not believe the alleged shooter or the victim is a student in the Bayless School District. No players, spectators, students or staff from either school were harmed. Our first concern is for the safety and well-being of our students, families, and those impacted by the events of this evening. We appreciate the assistance of our law enforcement officers in responding
