LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Lexington police are seeking information on a shooting at a park that may have injured five people.

Police told media that the shooting occurred Sunday night at Douglass Park during a basketball game. At least three people were taken to the hospital from the scene of the shooting and two others arrived separately at the hospital with gunshot wounds. Police say they think all five shooting victims are connected to the incident at the park.

Police said one person was in critical condition, but the others suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Lt. Jonathan Bastian said that there was a lot of chaos when the shots were fired so officers are looking for witnesses. He said police don't know how many suspects they are looking for due to conflicting statements.
