At least two people were shot dead in a Uvalde park Thursday night as the Texas community is still reeling from the gruesome mass shooting that killed 19 children and two teachers last May.
The shooting, believed to be gang related, erupted at Uvalde Memorial Park, authorities said.
Police said there were injuries but it was unclear how many were shot. According to KXAN-TV, Texas State Senator Roland Gutierrez said between two and six people were hit.
KENS 5 reported that two people were shot and a spokesman for the station’s area hospital said one casualty had arrived so far.
The Texas Department of Public Safety tweeted the incident appears associated with gang activity. State authorities said they worked for Uvalde Police and the local sheriff’s department.
Uvalde Police Chief Daniel Rodriguez said police are pursuing two suspects, according to Kens 5.
The shooting comes after the school district completed its third day of classes for the new school year after the municipality announced March 24.
