The shooting happened just before 4 p.m. Saturday during the third quarter of the game, KXAS-TV reported.

Fort Worth police spokesman Jimmy Pollozani told CNN that a group of parents was arguing when the son of one of the parents showed up and started shooting.

"He was shooting at our sideline. He was standing at the top of the hill. You could see him pointing down, shooting directly at the kids," Jonathan Cunningham, one of the teams' coaches, told KXAS-TV. "So we checked on our players, our kids, making sure everyone was OK. That's when we noticed one of our parents was shot."

A woman at the scene was shot in the leg and a bullet grazed a girl in the back, Pollozani said. They were both taken to a hospital, and their injuries are considered non-life-threatening.

Police are still searching for the shooter.
