PINOLE -- Violence marred a track meet at Pinole Valley High School, where one person was shot and fights broke out Wednesday afternoon.
Police held one man for questioning, briefly held a second and searched unsuccessfully for a third after the shooting, which sent a juvenile victim to the hospital with a wounded hand, Pinole police Deputy Chief Pete Janke said.
Police received calls about fights at the school, then a call about the shooting at 4:01 p.m., and officers arrived to find a large crowd of students in a parking lot near the football field, Janke said.
"We were told that a suspect had aimed a gun into the crowd, fired shots and then fled," he said.

This is terrible. Kids shouldn't have to worry whether they're going to get shot when they go to compete in a track meet. My son's school is scheduled to compete in a meet there this coming Tuesday. I already contacted the coach to encourage him to keep the team home - I doubt I'll let my son go there for a track meet any time soon. Also, the league trials and finals are supposed to be held in a few weeks at one of the schools who was at the meet/riot on Wednesday - hopefully they can move the meets to a safer place and keep any troublemakers away.
