Gunfire erupted at an annual Thanksgiving Day football game in Kentucky, leaving two dead and four others wounded, Louisville Metro Police said Thursday.

The shootings, shortly before 2 p.m., happened during what locals know as the annual Juice Bowl, which fills Shawnee Park with children and adults for a series of holiday football games, CNN affiliate WAVE reported.

The city's mayor, who was about 200 yards from the gunfire, was safely whisked away by security.

The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have joined the investigation into the shootings, according to WAVE.

The gunmen got away and the motive for the shootings was unclear, according to Dwight Mitchell, a spokesman for the Louisville Metro Police Department.

Four people were rushed to hospitals. Their condition is unknown but Mitchell described their injuries as not life threatening.
