Organizers of a music festival in Washington state canceled the second day of their event after a shooting at a nearby campground that left two dead.

Beyond Wonderland at The Gorge announced the change on Sunday while praising authorities who responded to the gunfire that erupted Saturday night. The shooting took place near the electronic music event in George, about 150 miles east of Seattle.

“We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the local authorities and staff who acted quickly to manage the situation,” it said in a statement, adding that “our heartfelt thoughts and condolences go out to the family, friends and all those affected by this tragic event.”

Kyle Foreman, a public information officer with the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, told reporters that officers responded around 8:30 p.m. Saturday to “reports of shots fired into [a] crowd” at a campground next to the Gorge Amphitheatre, where the festival was taking place.
