At least 6 people are dead and over 40 have been injured after multiple mass shootings across the country during the Halloween weekend, according to officials, APA reports citing NBC News.

In Texarkana, Texas, three people were killed and three others were injured during a party in a room at a business in the 700 block of N. Stateline Avenue on Saturday around 9 p.m.

"Apparently, this all started when a fist fight broke out between two men at the party. At some point during this fight, at least two men there pulled out rifles and started shooting," the Texarkana Texas Police Department said in a statement.

Six people ranging in age from 19 to 31 were shot. One man was pronounced dead on the scene, and a woman and another man died at the hospital overnight.

"The three other victims — two men and a woman — suffered what are not believed to be life threatening injuries and are recovering at the hospital," police said.

Detectives are searching for 20-year-old Breoskii Warren, who they've identified as a suspect in the shooting.

The Texarkana Texas Police Department is asking anyone with information on the shooting or Warren's whereabouts to come forward.

In Indianapolis, one woman was killed and eight others were shot during a large party.

Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to the party early Sunday morning at around 12 a.m. to find shots being fired and people running, according to the department. There were more than 100 people at the event.

The woman was pronounced dead on the scene. All the victims range in age from 16 to 22, police said.

Several people have been detained for questioning and multiple firearms were located on the scene.

In Tampa, two people are dead and 18 were injured after a shooting in Ybor City during Halloween celebrations in the area.
