State police with K-9 dogs are searching the woods for a person suspected of shooting two people outside a hip-hop concert in central New Jersey.

The shooting happened late Monday outside the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, causing panic among the crowd attending a show by Big Sean and J. Cole.

Eighteen-year-old Omayma Bougdour tells the Daily News that gunfire began after an argument broke out in the parking lot. She says "everyone started sprinting and stampeding."

State police say the suspect fled into nearby woods.

Two people were flown to area hospitals. Their conditions weren't immediately known. The Daily News reports that the victims, both men, are in critical condition.

PNC Bank Arts Center says the show was sold out.

Big Sean J. Cole are touring together on Cole's Forest Hills Drive tour, which also features sets by YG and Jeremih. They're to perform at Madison Square Garden in New York on Tuesday, Aug. 4.

Reps for J. Cole and Big Sean could not be reached for comment at the time of publishing.
