The Smith County Sheriff’s Office received a call around 12:35 a.m. alerting them to shooting victims at an event at a large pasture in Winona “described as a horseback ride, ATV ride and horse show,” the office said in a press release.

An altercation near the concert stage resulted in “one or more walking groups” firing shots into the crowd, witnesses told investigators. According to the press release, a second shooting took place when attendees at the event took back their guns from security personnel, who confiscated them before they were allowed into the concert.

A third shooting took place after police arrived, the sheriff’s office told KLTV.

“At this time, all injuries are believed to have occurred during the original shooting incident, as no new victims were found by law enforcement at the scene after the third shooting,” the press release said.

Four of those who were shot were taken to area hospitals, the sheriff’s office said. One person who was shot in the face was airlifted to a hospital in Tyler in critical condition, according to the press release.

“Only one victim remained hospitalized this morning and is in critical but stable condition,” the sheriff’s office said.

According to the press release, the investigators are interviewing witnesses and want to speak to the organizer and the security company.
