Three people were killed and three others injured in Illinois on Saturday when a shooter opened fire on a bowling alley, police said.
Rockford City Police told people on Twitter to stay away from the area near Don Carter Lanes bowling alley as it was an “active situation” and officials were evacuating the site.
“The investigation is still ongoing. We have three people who have been confirmed dead,” Police Chief Dan O’Shea said at a press conference outside the building.
He said three other people were injured in the gunfire and are being treated in local hospitals.
“We have a person who is interested in custody. We are pretty specific there,” O’Shea said, without indicating whether the shooter had a motive.
Don Carter Lanes posted a simple message on Facebook after the shooting, asking people to “pray please”.
Shootings are a common occurrence in the United States, but despite the scale of the gun violence, efforts to address them legally have long been bogged down at the federal level.
