Up to nine people, including a teenager, were injured after a shooter went on a killing spree at a large gathering in New York State, CNN reported.
The city police are still investigating the matter.
The incident started late Saturday evening when officials responded to a complaint about a stolen vehicle in Syracuse.
When the police arrived at the scene, hundreds of people were found on the street. People ran up to the officers and said someone was shooting, said Syracuse Police Chief Kenton Buckner. The officers did not hear any shots.
It is unclear what type of meeting it was. Officers found nine gun victims on site. A 17-year-old man was shot in the head and is in critical condition. The other eight have injuries that are not considered life threatening. The victims were between 17 and 53 years old.
"I think we have two or three different scenes, so I don't know which location contributed to which victims," said Buckner.
The Mayor of Syracuse, Ben Walsh, said he was not aware of any city permits for the assembly. "We would not issue permits for a meeting of this size, so we need to investigate how it came about," he added.
Local law enforcement agencies from the state, county, and other towns and villages responded to the scene.
