Oregon Concert Shooting Leaves 6 Injured

Six people had to be taken to a hospital after shots rang out Friday night at a rap concert in Eugene, Oregon.

Police Chief Chris Skinner said one victim has been listed in critical condition after “certainly one of the highest-profile shootings we’ve had in the city of Eugene.”

The victim was undergoing surgery, he added. He did not know the status of the others injured, CNN reported.

The shooting took place during a Lil Bean and Zay Bang concert, police said.

“Reports came in at 9:29 p.m. of multiple shots fired at WOW Hall, 219 W. 8th Avenue. EPD & multiple law enforcement agencies responded, along with Eugene Springfield Fire,” police tweeted.

Skinner asks for any witnesses with video or audio of the incident to assist police with their investigation.

“We just need people to feel comfortable and bring that forward so we can better understand what happened and better identify our suspect,” he said. “All we know at this point is we have a male in a hoodie that was seen running westbound … right after the shooting.”

WOW Hall Interim Executive Director Deb Maher and Board Chair Jaci Guerena released a statement on the venue’s website, calling the shooting “unprecedented.”

“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,” the statement said.
