We really want the people of Mexico to have a better quality of life.
A soccer game was suspended after gunfire erupted outside a stadium in northern Mexico, sending players fleeing and spectators ducking for cover under seats.
Local soccer clubs Santos and Morelia were tied at 0-0 Saturday when gunmen attacked a nearby police station in Torreon city.
About 40 minutes into the match, thundering shots pierced through the noisy stadium.
Players and referees took off, leaving a soccer ball at the center of the field. Crowds ducked under seats as others scuttled through the field carrying children.
Commentators, who were dissecting the game seconds earlier, went quiet.
“This is bad, I think it’s gun shots,” a sportscaster says in Spanish.
Military officials found an abandoned vehicle with weapons near the stadium after a ground and air surveillance, the Notimex news agency reported.
Mexican President Felipe Calderon said there were no fatalities.
“Shots outside the Santos stadium creates panic in the Santos-Morelia game,” the president said in a Twitter post.
“The situation is under control,” he tweeted.
Torreon is in the state of Coahuila, which like other border states, has seen a high level of drug cartel-related violence.
Last month, authorities in Torreon said they found 10 mutilated bodies inside the back of a truck, Notimex reported.
