A seemingly harmless argument between parents at a high school football game in Fort Worth, Texas, turned violent when gunfire erupted and injured two people.

According to the Fort-Worth Star-Telegram, parents were embroiled in an argument about a call on Saturday near Eastern Hills Elementary School. Sometime during the dispute, the son of one of the parents arrived with a handgun and opened fire. 

A woman was struck in the leg by one bullet while a little girl was grazed in the back.

Both the woman and the girl were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

KTLA TV said that Forth Worth police and other agencies were still searching for the gunman as of Sunday morning.
