iStock/Thinkstock(UNION GROVE, Wisc.) — A suspect is at large after three men were shot and killed Sunday at a car racing track in Wisconsin.

Here’s what we know about the investigation:

The shooting

The deadly shooting was reported at the Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove at 6:59 p.m.

No additional injuries were reported beyond the three people shot and killed, Sergeant Mark Malecki of the Kenosha Sheriff’s Department told ABC News.

Kenosha Sheriff’s Department said it was estimated that over 5,000 people were at the Great Lakes Dragaway event “known as ‘Larry’s Fun Fest’ which in the past has attracted persons from Milwaukee, Chicago and other surrounding areas.”

The motive

Malecki told ABC News on Monday the shooter remains at large and that the motive is believed to be gang-related.

Malecki said all indications are that the victims were targeted and this was not a random act of violence.

The victims

The victims were all men from Illinois, Malecki said: two 30-year-old men and one 26-year-old man.

The sheriff is expected to release the victims’ names at a news conference this afternoon, Malecki said.
