Three people were shot Friday in Oakland, California, a few blocks from the NBA champion Golden State Warriors' parade route. The shooting occurred at 12:11 p.m. PDT, the Oakland Tribune reported, and took place at 1800 Lakeshore Ave., which is near the edge of Lake Merritt. That location was about five blocks from the parade route.

Identities and descriptions of the victims were not immediately available. Three ambulances arrived on the scene. The Oakland Police Department confirmed to Fox affiliate KTVU that the victims did not have life-threatening injuries. Authorities later reported that one victim was in critical condition and the other two were in serious condition, the Tribune wrote.

Witnesses told police that the shooter fled the scene on foot, the Tribune reported. There is currently no suspect in custody, and the motive is unknown. The scene is guarded by police and taped off as a crime scene.

"Three shots went off pop pop pop and people started running. It was too crazy," parade attendee Dan Eaton of Oakland told the Tribune. The event celebrated the Warriors’ defeat of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals this week. The parade was scheduled for 10 a.m. PDT and drew an estimated 500,000 fans, who started lining the route as early as 5 a.m.
