Three people were injured in a pair of shootings in Milwaukee following the Bucks’ NBA Finals win on Tuesday night, police confirmed on Wednesday morning.

The shootings, per the Associated Press, took place in two locations across the Milwaukee River near Water Street around 12:42 a.m. on Wednesday.

Multiple shots were heard on local TV broadcasts, including on TMJ4, who was covering the celebrations when “dozens of gunshots” were heard. The scene, reporter Ben Jordan said, was “incredibly frightening.”

Two suspects are in custody, one from each shooting. All three victims — a 19-year-old woman, 22-year-old man and a 32-year-old man — suffered non-life threatening injuries. Police are investigating and are still searching for others involved.

A police officer was also injured at the Deer District plaza, where about 65,000 fans packed in to watch the game outside of the stadium. The officer was trampled by people trying to get in, per the report, but did not suffer serious injuries.

The Bucks closed out the Phoenix Suns 105-98 in Game 6 behind a historic performance from Giannis Antetokounmpo. It marked their first NBA title in 50 years.
