One man is dead and another is fighting for his life after they were shot outside an entertainment venue on the Fourth of July in Randolph, Massachusetts, officials announced.

Randolph police responded to a parking area near the Mojitos Country Club for a report of a shooting around 8 p.m. Monday and found two victims with critical injuries.

Both victims were taken to a Boston hospital where one man died from his injuries, while the other was being treated for life-threatening injuries late Monday night, Norfolk County District Attorney Michael Morrissey said in a statement. Officials are not releasing the victims' names at this point.

There was no word on any possible suspects or arrests, but police and the DA said there is no known ongoing threat to the community at this time.

The immediate area surrounding 44 Mazzeo Drive was closed to traffic following the shooting, and police warned residents there would be a significant police presence while the investigation is ongoing. Part of the parking lot outside the venue was still blocked off with crime tape at 11 p.m.

State and local police detectives were conducting interviews Monday night with witnesses who were in the area at the time of the shooting, the district attorney said.
