An active shooter has been reported at the Texas State Fair, one of the largest state fairs in the United States.

The shooting reportedly happened just before 8 p.m. local time on Saturday.

Police sources told WFAA two people were shot, but no one was killed.

“The State Fair of Texas is being evacuated after a reported shooting, according to the Dallas Police Department. Details are limited as the situation is active; however, police say one suspect is in custody,” CBS News reported.

The State Fair was evacuated as police responded.
