BATESVILLE – District Attorney John Champion said that the shooting that killed 15-year-old Roderick Bobo Friday night after the football game between North Panola and Rosa Fort High Schools came during a shootout between two rival groups on school grounds between the high school building and the principal’s residence.

“It was quite a busy night Friday night in Sardis,” Champion said, speaking, along with Panola Sheriff Dennis Darby,  at a Monday news conference attended by area media representatives and public officials.

“There were multiple, multiple shots fired,” the district attorney said. “There were actually two separate shootings,” he continued, on the high school grounds. “You had the initial confrontation where the shots were fired and then some probably minute to two minutes later—there was a second set of shots fired,” Champion said, describing it as a “gunfight.”
