DALLAS, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) — A 15-year-old boy has turned himself in for the shooting at a high school basketball game Saturday night.
Just after 9 p.m. Jan. 11, South Oak Cliff was taking on Kimball at Ellis Davis Field House when a fight broke out and shots were fired — striking an 18 year old.

The teen was transported to a nearby hospital where he is in serious condition. A DISD officer was also grazed by a bullet, but is expected to be OK.
At a gathering outside Sunday night, South Oak Cliff Senior Class President Tyesha Brown said she still cannot believe what she saw.
“I was in shock that it got that far,” Brown said. “I didn’t think it would get that far at a game.”
She wants to make sure what happened during Saturday night’s basketball game never happens again. And she’s not alone.
“It’s extremely concerning because I taught a lot of the students who play basketball for South Oak Cliff,” Shareefah Mason, a teacher for DISD, said. “I have lost many students to prison as well as to death, and it is very alarming when you’re pouring out all your passions in the classroom to teach the students only to see them not make it 21 years old.”
Earlier Sunday, police released a photo of three people of interest. Hours later, one of the individuals pictured turned himself into police headquarters and was charged with aggravated assault.
The other two individuals pictured in the photo are also juveniles that have been identified, but they will not face any charges.
