It's been confirmed that a 16-year-old Midwest City High School student was killed in Friday night's shooting.

Police say that an argument between two males led up to the deadly shooting during a football game between Del City and Choctaw.

We're still waiting for more details about what happened, and if the shots a Del City officer fired hit anyone.

Mid-Del City Schools released a statement confirming the victim was a Midwest City student:

Dear Bomber Families:

It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the death of one of our Bombers who was in attendance during the Del City at Choctaw High School football game on Friday, August 25. There are no words to adequately describe our sympathy for the family of our student. Additionally, we know that the coming days and weeks will be difficult for our students and staff. We will have grief counselors available for anyone needing to speak with someone.
Any time a student death occurs, reactions are varied. Please be alert for any of the following indications of grief
Physical - changes to sleep patterns or eating habits
Emotional - changes such as unusual fears, anger, worry or clinging
Social - loss of interest in usual activities.
Open communication between parents and children is very important. If you think your child is having a particularly difficult time dealing with this situation, please contact the school for assistance.

Of the two other people who were shot, one has been released as of Saturday night.

"We don't have any suspects in custody at this time," Choctaw Police Chief Kelly Marshall said.
