One male victim was taken from the scene to a local hospital to be treated for two gunshot wounds.

Police tell KLFY’s Carly Laing another gunshot victim has showed up at the hospital and they believe that person is also connected to the shooting.

Police do not have a description of a suspect at this time. Soriez told The Daily Advertiser there may be more than one shooter.
