METHUEN, Mass. (AP) — Police say three Massachusetts teens were arrested following an altercation at a high school football game.

Police say 19-year-old Anthony Rivera, of Lawrence, and two 17-year-olds youths, one from Lawrence and one from Methuen, were charged with assault by means of a dangerous weapon and leaving the scene of a property damage crash on Saturday.

Authorities say they are looking for a fourth suspect but don’t believe he is a threat to the community.

Police say an officer stationed at the front gate of Methuen High’s stadium received a tip that the suspect displayed a gun, visually confirmed the presence of the weapon and pursued the suspect toward a vehicle before being struck by the vehicle.

Methuen was playing Lawrence. It was not clear if Rivera had an attorney.
