Schubert said the ammunition was fired both inside and outside, “and potentially back and forth” shortly after some sort of quarrel. Casing found on the scene indicates that a pistol and a rifle were used, and police said they believed there were multiple shooters.

Two male victims died in the hospital and eight more were being treated for gunshot wounds, police said.

Police said initially that nine people were injured in the shooting, but Schubert corrected the number at a press conference. The names of the two boys who died were not immediately announced.

Some were injured by jumping out of windows, down stairs, asking for a cover, or trying to escape, Schubert said. The two who jumped out of the window broke, officials said. According to Schubert, one victim was injured after the car was “shot”.

ShotSpotter has shown more than 90 shots. “We know that there were far more bullets between the inside and the outside of the structure,” Schubert said.
