At least five people are thought to have died after in a mass shooting at a Sweet 16 birthday party in a small Alabama town. 

The shooting happened around 10:30 p.m. on Saturday at Mahogany Masterpiece dance studio in Dadeville, Alabama, and the majority of the victims are thought to be teenagers. 

 Witnesses reported hearing multiple gunshots and people running and screaming from the building on N. Broadnax Street.

The Tallapoosa County Coroner has confirmed people died in the shooting but did not confirm how many, according to ABC33. 

A disturbing photo appears to show at least six people lying on the ground after the shooting at the venue. 

It is unclear whether police have made any arrests. More than 20 people injured were transported to local hospitals for medical attention. 

Details about the suspects or motives have not yet been released by the authorities. 

Dadeville is a town of just 3,000 people situated approximately 60 miles outside the state’s capital Montgomery.

This is a developing story.
