6 people hospitalized, 1 in critical condition, after shooting at concert in Oregon

Police say there are still suspects.

Police say six people were taken to hospital following a shooting at a concert in Eugene, Oregon.

At 9:29 p.m. on Friday, there were reports of multiple shots being fired outside WOW Hall. Eugene Police and multiple law enforcement agencies responded, along with Eugene Springfield Fire.

Of the six victims shot, one is in critical condition, Eugene CEO Chris Skinner said at a news conference early Saturday.

Police still don’t know if the shooting was random or targeted, but Skinner said it was “one of the highest value shootings we’ve ever had in the city of Eugene.”

There are no reported deaths at this time.

Police are looking for a single suspect, believed to be a male in a hoodie, who was last seen running west from the scene, Skinner said. He added that he did not believe there was a broader safety risk to the community, but emphasized that the suspect was likely still armed and dangerous.

“You may have heard that there was a shooting outside WOW Hall tonight at the ‘Lil Bean + Zay Bang’ concert*,” said WOW Chairman Jaci Guerena and Interim CEO Deb Maher said in a statement on their website. “Not much is known at the moment, but we heard gunshots in the rear parking lot. The motive is unknown. We know that several people were injured, but we do not know the extent of the injuries and We don’t want to speculate.”

All classes held at WOW Hall are canceled until further notice, they said.

“We at WOW Hall would like to thank all of the first responders who arrived so quickly to ensure everyone’s safety and provide first aid. We believe all staff and volunteers are safe. This is unprecedented at the WOW Hall. The police are investigating. If we receive additional information, we will try to provide that information,” Guerena and Maher added.

The shooting is under active investigation.

Police are asking anyone with information regarding the incident (case 22-00850) to call 541-682-5111.
