Police reports have surfaced on Thursday showing that one person has been killed and six others were injured after a large rally at a Phoenix Phoenix, Arizona, hotel.
One of the victims was a 23-year-old man who was attending the rally with his family, the Phoenix Police Department said.
Another man, an off-duty police officer, was also injured when he was struck by flying debris and fell, police said.
Phoenix Police Chief Daniel Scarpinato said the man and officer were transported to local hospitals.
The incident is under investigation and police were not immediately releasing any information.
The police chief said the crowd of thousands of people was mostly peaceful, and that the suspect “seemed to be in control.”
The man and woman who were killed were identified as Matthew Peralta and Sarah Ransom, a 25-year old woman, and a 28-year year old man, who is identified by the police chief as James D’Agostino.
Another person, a man in his 40s, was not hurt.
According to a Phoenix Police spokesman, the suspect was identified as a white man in a gray coat, possibly a mannequin or a prop, wearing an orange hooded sweatshirt.
He was driving a black SUV.
Arizona Republican Rep. Tom McClintock, who lives in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa, said on Twitter that the man who died was at the rally wearing a “Trump T-shirt,” which he said was a replica of one worn by Trump in Phoenix.
“We all pray for the injured man and the families of the others who were hurt, and will be watching closely to see if they have any updates on their injuries,” McClintocks tweeted.
Trump campaign spokesman Brian Daniels said in a statement that the incident was a tragic accident that happened at a time when our campaign is focusing on helping our fellow Americans recover from the devastating impacts of this virus outbreak.
“This is a tragic and unfortunate incident involving one of our own,” Daniels said.
This is not the first time a Trump supporter has died at a rally.
A man in Arizona was shot by police after he was arrested at a Trump rally in March.
