ORIGINAL STORY: Chattanooga Police are on the scene of a shooting in a parking lot outside of the Riverbend Festival.
Police say two people were shot and transported to a local hospital. There is no information on their conditions.
According to Chattanooga Police Chief David Roddy, one person has been detained who is believed to be connected to the shooting.
"That person has been transported back to the police department to determine what their connection is to the event," Roddy told reporters.
Roddy says everything happened outside the Riverbend Festival grounds.
"I don't know that any of the individuals that were connected to this, that we have spoken to, had any connection or any kind of (Riverbend) armbands," said Roddy.
Roddy calls the shooting "alarming" on a night that thousands of people were expected to attend the festival on its last night to see Macklemore and a fireworks display.
Channel 3 reached out to Friends of the Festival, which organizes Riverbend.
