MANTECA, Calif. — A Friday night football game in Manteca ended abruptly after reports of a gun sighting surfaced during a fight, officials with the Manteca Police Department and Manteca Unified School District said in a joint Facebook post. During Sierra High School's homecoming game against Modesto High School, Manteca Police officers say they were called to Sierra High School after a fight broke out involving a group of students from multiple local high schools. Authorities say school administrators called 911 and reported that there was mention of a gun involved in the fight but that the administrators had not seen a gun first-hand.
