WEST ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV.com) -- Police responded to a large disturbance at Parkway North High School Friday night.

Police said they believe a gunshot was fired during one of many fights that broke out around the outside of the school.

Students from several high schools were at the football stadium for a jamboree and teams were on field when alleged shots were fired. No injuries were reported.

Witnesses said the panic started after someone yelled "he has a gun".

"Somebody pulled out their gun and then everybody started running because everybody got scared and didn't know what to do," said student Jaylin Tate.

The event was shut down for the night and everyone was asked to leave.

Parkway Schools released a statement on their Facebook page following the incident:

There have been unconfirmed reports of gunfire at the football jamboree at Parkway North this evening. Multiple schools were participating in the event. We are working with St. Louis County PD to find out more and we hope to have updates from the St. Louis County PD shortly.

Parkway's superintendent said counselors will be providing support students at Parkway North on Monday.

A shooting was reported near Soldan High School Friday night. Police say 4 people were shot.
