SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 15 (Xinhua) -- Six people were injured Friday night after a shooting outside a concert hall in Eugene, U.S. state of Oregon, police said.

Of the six victims that were shot and hospitalized, one was in critical condition, Eugene Police Chief Chris Skinner said at a news conference early Saturday morning, adding that it's not clear if the shooting was random or targeted.

"What we have right now is a single suspect," Skinner said. "All we know is that he's male and in a hoodie."

Police were called to the WOW Hall in downtown Eugene around 9:30 p.m. Friday night after receiving reports of multiple shots fired and multiple victims. The shooting happened in a parking lot behind WOW Hall while a concert was taking place.

According to Skinner, witnesses were not cooperative with the officers who first responded to the scene. He called the shooting "one of the highest-profile shootings we've had in the city" and urged witnesses to contact police to offer any information.
