A teenager was charged Thursday with several felonies, including attempted murder, in connection with a shooting on Sunday near a Colorado high school that injured six teenagers.

The 15-year-old girl was booked into the Jefferson County Juvenile Detention Center.

Seven teenagers were injured in the shooting, which happened after a fight that broke out at the Creekside Elementary School football game, police said Sunday.

A fight broke out after a game between the Roosevelt High School football team and the Jefferson High School basketball team at Creekside Elementary School on Saturday, and one teenager pulled out a gun and opened fire, according to police.

The shooting injured six people, four of whom were taken to a hospital and two of whom were treated at the scene, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Jacki Kelley said. One person remained in critical condition and another was in serious condition on Wednesday. The other four victims were treated and released.

According to the Greeley Tribune , where the school district is based, the shooting occurred about a block from the football field and occurred about 30 minutes after the game.

None of the injured people were police officers, Kelley said.

When she went to the hospital on Sunday, Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Julie Brooks said she was told by doctors there was a shooter with a gun on the scene, and she described the site as very, very chaotic.

“I saw victims laying on the ground. There were a lot of police (officers) there immediately,” she said.

The goal was to save all of the victims, she said.
