Official: Attack on coach, gunfire rattled players

KSAL StaffSeptember 13, 2014

An official with a Wichita youth football league says the group does not plan to add extra security for weekend games in the wake of an attack on a coach and gunfire at a practice earlier this week.

Greater Wichita Junior Football League athletic director Mickey Lara says he thinks it was an isolated incident.

The Wichita Eagle reports five to six men attacked the 37-year-old coach. The beating stopped after the coach’s wife pulled out a gun and fired a shot in the air. The coach then went to his car and got another gun, which he reportedly pointed at several people.

Lara says some parents have told him their children are a little shaken up, but others have put it behind them.
