Washington D.C Game Involving Bronny James Cancelled Amid Alleged Gun Scare
A high school basketball game involving Bronny James, son of Los Angeles Lakers star Lebron James, ended prematurely after mass panic erupted inside the stadium. Bronny’s team, the Sierra Canyon, was playing in Washington D.C against DeMatha when a physical altercation allegedly ensued in the stands. Witnesses that were attending the game say that the fight involved multiple people and that one of them allegedly pulled out a firearm.
Fans became alarmed and chaos ensued after someone shouted “gun”. Bronny, his team and coaches were caught on video rushing off the court as quickly as possible. L.A Daily News writer Tarek Fattal posted the video to social media.
Local authorities performed a thorough sweep of the area after arriving on the scene. After completing the search, police stated that they “did not locate a firearm.” Additionally, a police spokesperson announced that nobody was injured. However, out of an abundance of caution, neither team decided to return to the court to finish the rest of the game.
“High schoolers can’t event hoop in peace now a days,” Bronny said on his Instagram page. The young player was reportedly shaken up by the situation. His father Lebron has not commented on the incident. Bronny recently signed an NIL deal with the underwear brand “PSD”.
