A shooting at a Halloween party in Texarkana, Texas, left one person dead and nine others injured, the Texarkana Police Department said Sunday.
Officers responded to reports of a shooting at Octavia’s Event Center in the 2300 block of Texas Boulevard shortly before midnight and “encountered a large number of people running from the building and several inside suffering from gunshot wounds,” the Texarkana Police Department said in a statement on Facebook. Texarkana is about 180 miles east of Dallas, CNN reports.
At the time of the shooting, a few hundred people were inside the venue, police said.
Victims were taken to Wadley Regional Medical Center and Christus St. Michael Hospital, police said.
One 20-year-old man died shortly after being admitted to the hospital, police said in the statement. His name is being withheld until the family can be notified.
The other nine victims’ injuries do not appear to be life-threatening, police said.
