(OAKLAND, Calif.) — Two adults — a man and a woman — have been shot during a high school graduation taking place in California, according to police.

The incident occurred at approximately 7:45 p.m. at Skyline High School in Oakland, California, when two people, currently identified as an unnamed man and an unnamed woman, were shot on the north side of campus while the graduation ceremony was taking place, according to a statement from the Oakland Police Department.

The two shooting victims were taken to local hospitals where they are currently listed in stable condition.
