At least six people were killed and over 40 were injured in multiple mass shootings across the country during the Halloween weekend, according to officials.

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

"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 ages 19 to 31 were shot. A man was pronounced dead at the scene, and a woman and another man died at a 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 Breoskii Warren, 20, whom they've identified as a suspect in the shooting.

Texarkana police ask anyone with information about the shooting or Warren's whereabouts to come forward.

In Indianapolis, a woman was killed and eight other people were shot at a large party.

Indiana police officers responded to the party Sunday at around 12 a.m. to find shots being fired and people running, the police department said. More than 100 people were at the event.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. All of the victims are 16 to 22, police said.

Several people have been detained for questioning, and multiple firearms were found at the scene.

In Tampa, Florida, two people were killed and 18 were injured in a shooting in the Ybor City neighborhood during Halloween celebrations.

A fight broke out between two groups just before 3 a.m., Tampa Police Chief Lee Bercaw said at a news briefing.

“And in this fight between two groups, we had hundreds of innocent people involved that were in the way,” he said.

Bercaw said at a news briefing Sunday afternoon that the people who were killed were 14 and 22 years old.

He said of the injured that 15 people were shot and another person had "serious" injuries.

Bercaw also announced the arrest of Tyrell Stephen Phillips, 22, charged with second-degree murder with a firearm. He credited the arrest to the community’s sending in tips to police.

In Chicago, several people were attending a Halloween party in the North Lawndale neighborhood when a fight broke out and a person began shooting at around 1:15 a.m., police said.

A total of 15 people ages 26 to 53 were shot and taken to hospitals. Two of them, a 26-year-old woman and a 48-year-old man, are in critical condition, Chicago police said in a statement.

Officers saw a man shooting into the location where the gathering was being held.

"The offender fled on foot and was placed into custody by responding officers a short distance away," police said in the statement. "A handgun was recovered on his person and the offender was transported to the area for questioning by detectives."

All four shootings are under investigation.
