(CNN) Five people were injured after being shot at a trail ride concert organized by a Texas motorcycle club early Sunday.

The Smith County Sheriff's Office received a call around 12:35 a.m. alerting them to gunshot victims at an event at a large pasture in Winona "described as being a trail ride, ATV ride and horse show," the office said in a news release.

An altercation near the concert stage resulted in "one or more trail ride groups" firing shots into the crowd, witnesses told investigators.

A second shooting took place when event attendees took back their guns from security personnel who had confiscated them before allowing entry into the concert, according to the news release.

A third shooting happened after law enforcement arrived, the sheriff's office said.

"At this time it is believed that all injuries took place during the original shooting incident as no new victims were located at the scene by law enforcement subsequent to the third shooting," the news release said. »
