(CNN) — A gunman opened fire at a popular entertainment district in Los Angeles’ downtown Thursday night, killing one person and wounding two others, police said.
The shooting occurred in Koreatown, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
“It’s unclear at this time if we’re looking for a single shooter or multiple shooters,” LAPD spokesman Officer Tony Im said.
Sgt. Rudy Lopez, a member of the Koreatown robbery unit, said there were reports of multiple shots fired, but details were sketchy.
The names of the two victims who were injured were not immediately released.
CNN affiliate KABC reported the shooting occurred during the annual Oktoberfest celebration.
Police provided no immediate information on suspects or motives.
Police have set up a command post in Koreatown, KTLA reported.
Oktoberfest, which was held in 2013, 2014 and 2015, takes place in two parts: on Friday and Saturday in the nearby Old Pasadena neighborhood, while Saturday and Sunday are held in the Koreatown area.
KTLA was reporting that the gunfire occurred about 7:30 p.m. (8:30 p.m. ET).
Emergency calls initially came in to police as a possible shooting at the Grand Park, which hosts concerts and free outdoor movie screenings in downtown Los Angeles, KABC reported.

The KTLA coverage was delayed, even though initial information was available from police.
“Due to what we’ve read in the media, we were told as soon as a shooting happens, you get ready,” Lt. Mike Loftus told KTLA as police officials were checking with media headquarters to assess information.
Later, investigators told CNN that the reports were incorrect.
