Five people were injured in a shooting in an event center parking lot in Austin, Minn. early Sunday.

The shooting just before midnight after a hip-hop event at Lansing Corners supper club, which was once a diner and is now an events center, reports Kare 11.

Two of the victims were critically injured, according to the Star Tribune. All of the victims have been taken to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.

The circumstances of the shooting are still under investigation. Authorities have not ruled out gang activity, reports Kare 11.

"We don't know if it's gang related or what the case may be," Mower County Sheriff Terese Amazi said, reports the Star Tribune. "Several victims are not cooperating, and witnesses at the scene didn't see anything. So that's frustrating."

Police suspect that at least two guns were involved in the shooting reports the Star Tribune. Although the supper club does not serve alcohol, bottles were found at the crime scene.
