A shooting that took place Saturday night at a South Jersey house party with hundreds of attendees left multiple people wounded and killed, police said.

The shooting occurred at around 11:50 p.m. Saturday at a residence on the 1000 block of East Commerce Street in Fairfield Township, Cumberland County, according to the New Jersey State Police. 

More than 100 people were at the house for a party when the gunfire began, sending attendees scattering for safety. 

Multiple victims were wounded and killed, but police have not provided the exact number of injuries or fatalities from the shooting, according to 6ABC. Police are calling the incident a "fatal mass shooting," according to NBC10.

Some of those who were wounded were transported to nearby hospitals by paramedics who responded to the scene.

At least six people who had been injured in the shooting were taken to Cooper University Hospital in Camden, according to CNN. Two of those victims have since been released from the hospital, while four others were still being treated for wounds. It is unknown yet how many people in total were taken to the hospital and the conditions of the victims who were wounded.

State troopers and SWAT were on the scene investigating the shooting. Police could be seen searching the area with dogs. The residence is located in a wooded area near a cemetery, a church and a school.

Authorities were investigating a vehicle parked at the nearby cemetery, but it was unclear if there was a connection between the car and the shooting. The vehicle has since been towed from the scene, according to CBS3.

No arrests have been reported. It remains unknown who opened fire or what the cause of the incident was.
