Three people have been shot five blocks from the NBA championship celebration for the Golden State Warriors in Oakland.

Police say they received a call shortly after noon and found three victims with gunshot wounds.

Neither the condition of the victims nor their identities were immediately released. A motive wasn't clear.

The Oakland Tribune reports that witnesses told police the gunman ran away. The newspaper says three ambulances were called to the scene.

The Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in six games Tuesday, taking its first basketball championship in 40 years.
