Upon arriving at the location deputies learned that three masked black males riding on a red three wheeler just fired several rounds from into three residences on Grant Road.

The shooting victims ages 17yoa and 25yoa each sustained single gunshot wound to the arm and jaw respectively. Both victims were treated and released from the hospital later that afternoon.

This matter remains under investigation.
