MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. - A shooting scare interrupted a Friday night high school football game at the Nathaniel Traz-Powell Stadium in Miami-Dade College's North Campus.

According to the Miami-Dade Police Department, North District officers responded to the stadium for a male's laceration and a cheerleader who suffered an asthma attack. 

The game was interrupted about 9:35 p.m., and resumed about 10 p.m., but most of the crowd at the stadium was gone. Carol City beat Northwestern 28-7.
