Shots have been fired at an apartment complex in San Bernardino, California, injuring at least 10 people who were gathered there, local officials say. No arrests were immediately made.

The incident happened at about 10:45 p.m. PT on Sunday when officers were called to an active shooter in the common area of an apartment complex on East Lynwood Drive, which is located in the city’s northeast.

Neighbors reported hearing gunshots being fired in rapid succession, which happened when a group of adults was playing dice in the common area. Photos from the scene showed evidence markers on the street.

A spokesman for the San Bernardino Police Department said at least 10 people had been shot, including three people who were reported to be in an “extremely critical” condition. There were no reports of fatalities.

Alysa Marie, who lives near the apartment complex, told CNN that she heard about 15 to 20 gunshots. “My brother-in-law could hear bullets flying past our house, he was outside at the time of the shooting,” she said.

A car with a shattered window was seen in front of the building as police began to investigate. There was no immediate word on a possible motive and no arrests were made as of Monday morning.

San Bernardino is about 50 miles (80 kilometers) northeast of Los Angeles.
