Officials in Uvalde, Texas, say two people were wounded Thursday when gunfire erupted in a suspected gang-related incident in the town’s Memorial Park. 

In May, Uvalde was the scene of a mass shooting at Robb Elementary School that left 19 children and two teachers dead. 

Uvalde police said in a statement on Facebook that two juveniles were taken to city of San Antonio hospitals Thursday for treatment of their injuries and their conditions were unknown. 

The police said in a statement that four suspects are in custody and are being questioned.  

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said in a statement posted on Twitter that he “was outraged to learn that gang violence has endangered the Uvalde community and innocent Texans this evening.”

He said he has ordered “an additional six DPS [Department of Public Safety] trooper units to work around the clock and begin coordinating an anti-gang effort with the city.”
