NBC also reported a bomb squad was investigating a suspicious car Sunday night. 

The "Draw Muhammad" event is a contest with a $10,000 prize for cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad. In Islam, any depiction of Muhammad is usually considered offensive. 

News outlets already had a presence at the controversial event, including a WFAA reporter who tweeted video of law enforcement moving attendees into an auditorium away from where the shooting took place.

The identities of the shooters have not yet been disclosed, and police haven't confirmed whether the attack was religiously motivated.
