Six people were shot during a concert at an event hall in the US state of Oregon on Friday night, and the suspected shooter was not yet in custody, police said, AP reported.
Officers responded to the WOW Hall in Eugene after reports of a shooting around 9:30 p.m., police said in a statement.
“What law enforcement found when they came on scene is what you would exactly expect when six people just got shot,” Eugene Police Chief Chris Skinner said at a news conference. “People are just trying to get out of here, their friends are on the ground, they’re trying to help.”
Six people were taken to the hospital, and at least one of them was in critical condition, Skinner said. The extent of the other injuries was not immediately clear.
The shooting happened in a back parking lot outside the venue, police and WOW Hall leaders said.
A concert featuring Lil Bean & Zay Bang, and other artists, was being held at the hall at the time.
Police said no suspect was in custody.
Investigators have not determined whether the shooting was random or targeted, the police chief said.
Eugene is located about 110 miles (177 kilometers) south of Portland, Oregon.
