After the game, Oak Creek's head coach tweeted saying in part: "Thank you for working with police to ensure the safety of our players, coaches and fans."

Goldsmith said he wants change in the city.

"We have to start with educating our children and gun safety and make sure they know that guns are not cool," he said.

Racine police have not released any information about who is responsible for the gunshots. 

It was not the only high school that had issues Friday night. During the Wauwatosa East-Milwaukee Lutheran game, police said there was a fight. Four people were arrested.
