Lifesaving measures were performed, and all four individuals were transported by air to local trauma centers. All four individuals are expected to survive their injuries.

"It's a small-town community," said a witness. 

That witness, who did not want to be identified, said he heard the gunfire.

"Last night, my wife and I were laying down in the evening, and we heard a 'pop, pop,' and she's like, 'Oh my God, somebody is doing some shooting,'" he said. "I saw an individual swing his arm from one direction to another. I hear another pop, and then the individual brought the gun to himself, and I heard another pop."
