Seven people were shot early Saturday morning near the Lexington Legends baseball stadium, police in Kentucky said. Their injuries are considered non-life-threatening.

Two women were found suffering from gunshot wounds just before 2 a.m. after police were called to the Wild Health Field, where a private event was being held, for reports of shots fired. Multiple shell casings were found at the scene, the Lexington Police Department said in a statement.

An additional five people, two men and three women, later arrived at hospitals with gunshot wounds, police said.
