(CNN) -- The son of former Taiwan Vice President Lien Chan was wounded and another person was killed by bullets fired at a political rally Friday night, according to Taiwan's Central News Agency.

The gunshot wound to Lien Chan's son's right temple is not believed to be life-threatening, the report said. It did not give the son's name or the identity of the civilian who was killed.

A suspect, who is believed to be a local gang member, was arrested with a gun and 48 rounds of ammunition, the report said.
