Saturday night’s eighth annual Unity in the Park Festival in Cleveland, Ohio ended tragically when a large fight during Parliament Funkadelic legend George Clinton’s headlining set culminated with several blasts from a handgun, wounding three and killing a 16-year-old boy.

According to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, one victim, a 20-year-old woman who was shot in the neck, remains in critical condition while the other two, a 14-year-old boy and a 23-year-old man, are stable.

Police are uncertain exactly what started the fight in Cleveland’s Luke Easter Park, nor how many people were involved or what the shooter looks like (though they do know they are dealing with a single male suspect). No arrests have been made.
