Police told the station that a passerby called 911 around 5:30 p.m. local time Monday.

Authorities did not immediately provide details on the number of victims or their identities, and there was no information on any possible suspects.

Floyd noted that the incident took place on a dead-end road, so they were looking into whether the shooting was intentional, according to WSYX.

“We don’t know whether it’s a robbery, a target, we don’t know at this point,” he said. “Something brought somebody to a dead-end street.”
