Los Angeles/UNI/Xinhua: Three people, including a 15-year-old boy, were injured in a shooting incident at a graduation ceremony on Thursday night in Honolulu, the capital city of U.S. state of Hawaii, local media reported Friday, citing the police.

The boy was hospitalized in critical condition and two other victims were in serious condition, according to KITV television station.

The incident occurred at Thomas Square, a city park, a little before 9 p.m. local time. Witnesses told KITV that fireworks were being lit off while families and young people gathered in groups in the park. Graduation celebrations had kicked off earlier in the evening.

A witness described the pandemonium as the crowd scattered, seeing a young man open fire near the park where families and groups of young people were celebrating, the news outlet reported.

Witnesses said a lot of people were trying to run away from the area after hearing the gunshots, another local news outlet, Hawaii News Now, reported.

Local news outlets said three suspects in connection to the shooting had been arrested by Honolulu police.
