Mass shooting at Oregon rap concert leaves six hospitalized


Six people were injured after a shooting broke out at a rap concert in Eugene, Oregon on Friday, police said.

Multiple shots were fired at WOW Hall, where rappers Lil Bean, Zay Bang and other artists were slated to perform around 9:30 p.m., local time, the Eugene Police Department said.

The people who were wounded were taken to local hospitals. Their conditions were not immediately released, and cops didn’t say whether they had all been injured by gunfire.

“We have a male in a hoodie that was seen running westbound on 8th (Avenue) right after the shooting,” Eugene Police Chief Chris Skinner said in a press briefing. “We think that’s our suspect.”
