Deadly shooting at Great Lakes Dragaway

It happened at Great Lakes Dragaway in Kenosha County around 7 p.m.

Two died on the scene while a third died on the way to a hospital. All three victims were black men in their 30s, and from Aurora, Illinois, according to a police spokesperson.

No suspects have been arrested and there is no apparent motive, The AP reports.

"He had enough time and enough arrogance to go back up and actually make sure that they were dead", Beth said at an afternoon news conference.

Sheriff Beth said the entire crime scene was worked on until around 4:00 a.m. Monday. Searching the scene was hard because of the upwards of 15,000 people at the event and fading light after the 7 p.m. hour when it occurred.

After closing the door, the teens are heard laughing as the girl continues to cry from inside the refrigerator. He said he could not share any further information because the case involves juveniles.

While it is not confirmed if the killings were gang related, evidence available thus far strongly indicates that it was, Beth said. The Kenosha County Sheriff said three men were shot by another man at point blank range near a food vendor. "This is isolated and this is somebody who had a grudge with somebody and they came here and they really ruined a family event for people", Brian Mitchell, Great Lakes Dragaway volunteer told Fox6now.

After getting a statement from one of the victim's friends, authorities said they have no idea what caused the shooting and no one is in custody.

Sheriff's officials are encouraging anyone who witnessed the shooting to contact authorities.

Organizers of the annual event, called Larry's Fun Fest, said about 5,000 people attended Sunday's show.
