(CBS/AP) JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Gunfire erupted during a block party on Sunday near downtown Jacksonville that left eleven people injured, including two pregnant women.

The shooting started about 8:45 p.m. at J.S. Johnson Park in the city's Brooklyn neighborhood. Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford says a pregnant woman lost her baby and another pregnant woman was injured in the shooting.

Rutherford says victims were taken to three hospitals, but he didn't know their conditions.

The Florida Times-Union reported at least 100 people were at the party, where DJs were playing music and people were dancing when the gunfire started.

The sheriff says there were multiple shooters firing at each other.

None of the shooters had been arrested late Sunday.
