A pregnant woman was also hospitalized for minor injuries she received when she was knocked to the ground by people running away from gunfire.

Roughly 60 Birmingham police and Jefferson County deputies and 35 firefighters went to the scene.

“This could happen anywhere, this is not just focused in on Center Point. There was security on the site, it’s just when you have someone that comes into these types of events, there’s the potential, unfortunately, of these things happening,” Center Point Fire Chief Donnie West said.

Officials believe a fight broke out inside the carnival, and gunfire followed, AL.com reported.

Authorities have so far taken five people into custody for questioning.

Felicia Stubb, who was at the carnival with her four children when the shooting began, told AL.com that a man knocked down a portion of a fence which allowed people to escape the scene.

“I panicked. I couldn’t breathe,” Stubbs said. “I saw my 5-year-old and then I didn’t. You either jumped the fence or you got shot. I just thank the Lord Jesus Christ that we’re still here.”

“We were all running,” she said. “I could have lost my kids and my life.”

Stubb told the news outlet she’s attended the festival before, and there have never been any major problems.

“I’m trying to see how they got a gun in there. Who shoots on church grounds?” she told AL.com. “It’s so sad. And it’s ridiculous.”

The carnival event organizers released the following statement:

“On behalf of the event organizers for the 10th Annual Spring Carnival Extravaganza held in Center Point, Alabama April 12 – 16th at Cathedral of the Cross Church, we want to publicly express our concern for the victims involved, visiting patrons, and the community at large for the senseless act of violence that occurred on Saturday, April 15th. While our organization took every safety precaution made available to us to better ensure the general public’s safety and welfare at this event [such as: hiring highly skilled Sheriff deputies along with additional private security personnel, perimeter fencing, additional lighting, applying search and seize procedures along with posting a clearly visible sign at the gate entrance stating – NO WEAPONS OF ANY KIND ALLOWED, there is no excuse for breaking the law and infringing upon others’ right to spend quality time with their families.

We want to thank the Jefferson Sheriffs and Birmingham Police Departments for their immediate response to this situation by quickly taking control of the area which led to several suspects being arrested. We want to also thank the Fire and Rescue Units on the scene for providing outstanding medical attention to the victims involved.

With that stated, we have decided to CLOSE today in the best interest of all parties involved. The community’s faithful support of our event means a lot to us, and we want the public to know that we are doing everything possible to ensure that family’s safety is preserved and remains our top priority.”
