EUGENE, Ore. — Six people were wounded, one critically, Friday night during a shooting at a concert hall in Oregon, authorities said.
The shooting occurred just before 9:30 p.m. in the parking lot at WOW Hall in Eugene, KEZI-TV reported. Rappers Lil Bean and Zay Bang were performing inside the hall when shots were fired, the television station reported.
No suspect is in custody, according to KOIN-TV.
Police originally said four men and one woman were injured, but later confirmed that a sixth person was also taken to an area hospital, KEZI reported.
According to Eugene Police Department Chief Chris Skinner, that person is undergoing surgery and is in critical condition. The condition of the other people is unknown, according to the television station.
Police do not know if the shooting is random or targeted, Skinner said during a news conference. The chief said, however, that the shooting was “one of the highest-profile shootings we’ve had in the city of Eugene.”
“You may have heard that there was a shooting outside the WOW Hall tonight at the ‘Lil Bean + Zay Bang’* concert,” WOW Hall spokespersons Jaci Guerena and Deb Maher said in a statement on the venue’s website. “There is not much information currently available however we heard gunshots in the back parking lot. The motives are not yet known. We do know that some people were injured, but we do not know the extent of the injuries, and we do not want to speculate.”
