At approximately 8:42 PM yesterday evening, sheriff’s deputies were dispatched and responded to the area of 3000 South Rd. just east of 13000 East Rd. in regards to Shots Fired. Prior to arriving, deputies learned that two people had been shot at different addresses and were being transported to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.
