Eugene Police Department Chief Chris Skinner said during a press conference the shooting occurred outside WOW Hall.Skinner said there is believed to be one suspect, a man who was wearing a hoodie. Police are still searching for him as he fled the scene after the attack. It is not clear what type of gun the suspect used and if this was a targeted or random shooting. Skinner said it is "one of the highest profile shootings we've had in the city of Eugene" when asked if he would classify this as a mass shooting.

Police are seeking a gunman after he opened fire on a crowd gathered for a post-funeral meal at a Minneapolis community center this weekend, authorities said.

The shooting broke out around 3:30 p.m. local time on Saturday at the Cora McCorvey Health and Wellness Center, where about 100 people were gathered for a meal following a funeral service, police said.

Witnesses told police that a gunman entered the center and started arguing with people attending the meal before pulling a gun and opening fire on the crowd, Garrett Parten, a spokesperson for the Minneapolis Police Department, told ABC affiliate KSTP in St. Paul.
