York to play first Saturday football game since shooting

YORK, Pa. (WHTM)– William Penn High School will play its first Saturday afternoon game with enhanced security since a shooting two weeks ago.

This week, the school board voted to spend almost $20,000 on security upgrades including more radios and better sound equipment to communicate. They also started adding more cameras to the parking lot.

School police already patrol games but don’t have guns. The school board said a York City Police officer and a York County Sheriff’s officer will patrol the parking lot outside of the remaining home games.

Police said two weeks ago a teenager shot two men outside of the stadium during a football game. Both victims are expected to recover.
