Authorities said that seven people were shot in a single incident at a nightclub in Gary, Indiana on early Sunday. One of those shot sustained serious injuries.
Gary police Detective Sgt. William Fazekas said that one gunman involved in the shooting is already in their custody. Officers are still hunting down the other suspect.
The police also described the shooting incident as isolated.
The victims of the incident in the northern Indiana city were brought to hospitals for treatment. Most are in stable conditions. One victim, however, who sustained more serious injuries, was taken to a hospital in Chicago, about 25 miles away.

Lt. Westerfield said she expected to provide more information later Sunday or early Monday morning as soon as more verified details become available.
