Eight people were shot overnight near James Madison University in Virginia, causing non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The shots rang out around 2:20 a.m., as the gunman or gunmen fired into a crowd at an open-air gathering in a Devon Lane residential block less than a mile from Harrisonburg University.

The victims are between the ages of 18 and 27, police said, adding that they were being treated at two hospitals in the area.

A representative from James Madison University did not immediately respond to a question about whether students, faculty or staff were among the injured.

A representative from Sentara RMH Medical Center said the hospital initially received seven patients, two of whom were transferred to the University of Virginia Medical Center, a level 1 trauma center that provides comprehensive care after traumatic injury. The five patients still at Sentara RMH Medical Center had been discharged Sunday afternoon, the spokesman said.

A representative from the University of Virginia Medical Center said they couldn’t provide updates on patients’ condition without having identifying information for them.

Police are investigating how many gunmen were involved, they said in a statement, adding that no suspects were on the scene when officers arrived and they do not “believe there is a threat to the wider community at this time”.

Harrisonburg Police did not immediately respond to questions.
