On September 23, 2022 at approximately 8:45 p.m. Richfield High School was hosting their homecoming football game at their football field, 7001 Harriet Avenue South, in Richfield, MN.
A school staff member advised an on-site police officer that school officials had turned away a number of individuals from game entry that appeared to be waiting for the game to end.
The individuals were gathered a short distance northeast of the football field.
