Three of the victims were male.

The condition of the victims is unknown, but none of the injuries are considered to be life threatening, authorities said. The shooting is still under investigation. All of them were described as innocent bystanders, as the gunman was trying to shoot another man.

He ended up shooting three males, ages 10, 15 and 20 years old; and two women, ages 19 and 36.

According to the Gun Violence Archive , the incident was the 382nd mass shooting this year. GVA defines "mass shootings" as incidents in which four or more people are shot or killed, not including the shooter.
