Three men were shot dead at a drag race track in the USA state of Wisconsin on Sunday, local media reported, adding that no suspects were identified and no motive determined.

Beth said they do not have a suspect in custody.

Union Grove is about 25 miles south of Milwaukee.

A suspect is at large after three men were shot and killed Sunday at a auto racing track in Wisconsin. Beth said that family members that investigators have spoken with were so far uncooperative. "All of a sudden, during the same time, somebody walked up to them and just started shooting", Coleman said.

It happened at Great Lakes Dragaway in Kenosha County around 7 p.m.

According to scanner traffic, three people were shot at point blank range and two victims were transported to the hospital.

The suspect, according to witnesses, is identified as a black man in his 20s wearing a hooded sweatshirt with the sides of his head shaved.

The police said while friends of the victims were in shock after the event, they had no idea what would have led to the incident. Beth said at least two of the men were from Aurora, Illinois, The Associated Press reported. "We believe that whoever did this is either still on here on site, or more likely left the Great Lakes Drag Strip", Beth said.

"I'm thinking this was a mass exodus though I can't say for sure. It didn't take us long to get everybody to leave", said Malecki, adding that the evacuation made it hard for authorities to establish a crime scene.

Great Lakes Dragaway's website said the event included drag racing, tailgating, live entertainment and a vehicle show.
