Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth says authorities responded to the Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove around 7 p.m.

Sunday after receiving reports about shots being fired.

Beth says the three men were shot by another man at point-blank range near a food vendor.

No suspects have been arrested.

Two men died at the scene, and the third died while en route to a hospital.
