The total number of people who were shot is unclear at the moment, though it's being reported that as many as 10 could have been hit with bullets and that five injured people were rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital. The injured victims reportedly include a 17-year-old girl, a woman who sustained multiple gunshot wounds, and one man who was in critical condition, unresponsive, and needed paramedics to perform CPR en route to the hospital.

I'm sure I'm one of millions of people who feel this way, but boy do I wish we could wake up one morning and NOT read a story that involves guns and the shooting of innocent people.

Little else is known about this horrific incident. No arrests have been made and a motive for this crime hasn't been identified. We will keep you posted as additional details are released.
