The authorities received the first call at approx.. 7 pm CST that three people were shot. The individuals, who were hit with bullets, were attending Larry’s Fun Fest.

One 911 caller even suggested that one of the individuals died at the scene, according to the authorities. Sadly, two of the men died at the scene, while the third individual died on his way to the hospital.

Approx. 5,000 people were attending the Larry’s Fun Fest, according to the organizers. It’s believed that the three killed were from Ill., including two from Aurora, Ill.

“My basic conversation with them is they have no idea what caused this,” Beth said. “The three men shot were standing near a food vendor when the suspect walked up and shot them point blank.”

The alleged suspect is reportedly an African-American in his 20s. He was also described as wearing blue jean shorts and a black hoodie.

There is no indications that the alleged suspect knew the victims.

“We’re not aware of any altercations that happened earlier,” Beth said. “At this point, we’re not aware of exactly what caused this.”

The dragstrip has been open since 1955. The Larry’s Fun Fest is known as “part car show and part drag race.”
