SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Two people were shot at Cal Expo on Saturday night and police are on the lookout for the suspect.

Sacramento Police responded to the shooting just past 10 p.m. and searched for a suspect who witnesses say fled the scene.

Officials say one person had a wound to the leg and another was wounded in the hand and side.

The shooting happened as the event Naughty Gras was happening. Cal Expo officials say police closed the parking lots and crime scene at around 10:13 p.m. on Saturday. Parking lots C and D were reopened just before 11:30 p.m. and the event continued until its scheduled end at 1:30 a.m.
