DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) - Police in west Tennessee are investigating the shooting of five people at a social hall.

Officers arrived at the American Legion in Dyersburg as several people were fleeing early Sunday, the department said in a statement. Three men and two women had been shot, including some multiple times.

The victims, who were in their 20s and 30s, were flown to various hospitals and their conditions were unavailable. The statement said witnesses at the scene were uncooperative and no motive for the shooting was immediately established.

Police are seeking information from anyone who witnessed the shooting or was inside the club at the time.

Dyersburg is about 77 miles (124 kilometers) northeast of Memphis.
