UPDATE (9:15 pm): Sheriff says three dead in Great Lakes Dragaway shooting

One person has been killed and two others have been wounded in an altercation at the Great Lakes Dragaway in Wisconsin. The third man died at the hospital, according to media reports. Three people were shot dead at a drag race track in Wisconsin yesterday, authorities said, but it was unclear who was responsible and what the motive might have been.

He said the three victims were standing by a food vendor of some sort and the suspect walked up and shot them "point blank".

The suspect, according to witnesses, is identified as a black man in his 20s wearing a hooded sweatshirt with the sides of his head shaved.

"They have no idea what happened, what caused this", Beth said, after speaking with the friends of the victims.

The victims, all men in their 20s or early 30s, were from IL.

According to WITI, over 5,000 people from across the region including Chicago were at "Larry's Fun Fest" at the time.

The Great Lakes Dragaway is a quarter-mile dragstrip located in Union Grove, WI. He said it took close to two hours to leave the track.
