(Lancaster) -- Two midstate school districts are discussing the aftermath of a shooting in which two men were wounded in the parking lot outside a football game. 

York police say 23-year-old Darius Allen and 20-year-old Antwan Jackson, were wounded Friday night. That happened when an argument inside the stadium continued in the parking lot after police ejected the participants. 

The shooting took place during William Penn High School's home opener in York against J.P. McCaskey High School of Lancaster. 

The Lancaster-area school district planned a meeting this morning, and another tomorrow night at the high school. 

Police say the victims' role in the argument and shooting remained under investigation. 

Nobody's been charged.

The York City School District also plans to improve security at games, but says district police officers won't be armed.
