Authorities say an 8-year-old girl and four other people wounded by gunfire during a memorial service in upstate NY are expected to survive.

Police Chief Frank Fowler told reporters late Thursday that authorities had not identified a suspect or a motive. Another person was shot at a second scene nearby. The names of the wounded have not yet been released but police say their age ranges from between 8 and 35 years old. The victims are all expected to survive, police say.

The website said ambulances were seen driving away from the scene with a police escort at about 9:15 pm.

The number of suspects varied, according to witnesses, with some saying two and others saying three.
