One of those in the vehicle sustained minor injuries from the crash and was taken to a hospital for treatment. No one was reported hurt as a result of the gunshots.

A woman who was staying at a residence on Valley View Drive, a short distance south of the Ely Park Golf Course, called 911 to report what sounded like three gunshots "very close" to the home.
