Los Angeles - Thirteen people were wounded at a nightclub in Tempe in the US state of Arizona when shooting erupted during a rap music concert, police said early on Saturday.

"At this point, Tempe police officers and detectives have identified 13 shooting victims from the incident," Tempe Police Department spokesperson Sergeant Steve Carbajal said in a statement.

"Two victims are in serious condition at local hospitals, and none of the victims were fatally injured."

The incident occurred shortly before midnight local time on Friday (07:00 GMT on Saturday) at the popular Clubhouse Music Venue, which entertained the crowd with a rap music concert, Carbajal said.

He said witnesses had reported two black males in dark-coloured clothing fleeing the scene on foot after the shooting.

"Those individuals have not been located at this time," Carbajal said. "Tempe police detectives are currently on scene investigating what led up to the shooting and working on identifying the suspects."
