Police originally responded to a crash between two vehicles in the intersection of Craig Road and N 5th Street. Officers located a vehicle with multiple bullet holes on the passenger side. One person was pronounced deceased at the scene, according to public information officer Aaron Patty.

Citing the investigation, police said the shooting occurred at an apartment complex in the area of Deer Springs Way and Losee Road. The vehicle involved in the shooting carried three passengers with at least one child in the car. 

At least two of the three passengers were struck by bullets, leaving one dead. The driver was not shot, according to police. 

The driver was on the way to the hospital after the shooting when it crashed into a second vehicle on Craig Road and N 5th Street, according to officer Patty.
