The Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office announced that 15 people were wounded and three people were killed at a May Day event in Stockton, Alabama on Saturday.

Fifteen people were injured and three killed in a shooting at a large spring-themed event in Stockton, Alabama, on Saturday, police say.

The Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office announced the injuries and fatalities in a Facebook post on Sunday evening. Authorities explained that the mass shooting began at around 9:30 p.m. at a field on Upper Bryants Landing Road.

"Our preliminary investigation has revealed that local residents hosted a May Day event yesterday in an open field on Upper Bryant's [sic] Landing Road," the post read. 

Authorities say that the event, which had around 1,000 attendants, was peaceful "until an argument took place."

Authorities are actively searching for suspects. They believe multiple gunmen were involved and "are following up on those leads," police say.
