Authorities in South Texas are looking for a man who shot three people Saturday night after being thrown out of an illegal cockfight.

The man came back with a gun and opened fire, striking two men in the chest and a woman in the wrist. Other people in the crowd had guns, too, and opened fire on the shooter. He got away, though, and it's not known if he was hit.

He had been tossed out of the cockfight for unruly behavior.

The Hidalgo County sheriff says nobody at the cockfight reported the gun battle. Authorities only found out about it when people started showing up at the hospital.
