"We started running because we saw a horde of people running and we heard two really loud bangs," a witness told WFTX. 

Police told Newsy's partners at WFTX, at this time, there is no motive for the shooting and the shooter is still at large.

Roughly 20,000 adults and children attended the charity event. 

The organizers of Zombicon said in a statement, “We take the safety of our patrons very seriously and take precautions in hiring security and police officers for our annual event. Our prayers go out to the family members and individuals involved in the incident." 

The identities of the victims have not been released. The four people wounded were reportedly treated for non-life threatening injuries.
