AUDIO: Play-by-play call, EMS response at high school football game shooting in Pleasantville, New Jersey

PLEASANTVILLE, New Jersey (WPVI) -- From play-by-play broadcasters calling the next down, to an Action News photographer recording video for High School Huddle, to emergency personnel responding to the scene, audio from various sources captured the intense moments when gunfire rang out during a high school football game in South Jersey Friday night.

Nick Kasko was broadcasting the Camden Panthers and the Pleasantville Greyhounds playoff game on radio station 97.3 ESPN South Jersey.

It was the third quarter. Kosko was about to call the next play when gunshots could be heard in the background.

"Gunshots at Pleasantville-Camden Semi Final game. Everyone and I in the broadcast booth are safe. Police have defused the situation. Absolutely horrifying. My heart breaks for these victims tonight," Kosko wrote on Twitter just minutes after the shooting.

Later in the night, Kosko reacted to the response he received from those checking in on him on social media.

"I appreciate everyone reaching out tonight. I've never experienced anything that horrific. I hope to never witness again. Please keep the victims in your thoughts and prayers. Hug your loved ones extra tight tonight," Kosko wrote.

On Saturday morning, shortly after authorities announced the arrest of five men in connection to the shooting, Kosko posted the audio of his play-by-play call.

"It was a very scary situation last night. But we have to let everyone know what happened at Pleasantville HS during the shooting," Kosko wrote.
