Two people were shot outside of Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee after Friday night’s Game 6 matchup between the Bucks and Celtics, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The Milwaukee Fire Department told the publication that one man and one woman were shot near the arena and were taken to a local hospital. They are in stable condition.

Mass hysteria broke out around the arena after shots were fired near the “Deer District” right around the final buzzer of the game. Fans were seen sprinting out of the area surrounding the arena, causing confusion for fans leaving the arena after the game ended.

The Bucks said earlier on Friday night that 11,000 people were populating the vicinity as the Bucks played their biggest home game of the season.

Milwaukee police blocked off the intersection of North MLK Drive and West Highland Avenue as they investigated the incident.
