Editor’s note: By the definition that the FBI uses to determine it, this shooting is technically a mass shooting. And our hearts break for the victims, their families and our community for getting caught up in this seemingly wholly American tradition of loved ones taken too soon by gun violence. We are sorry for your loss. We are sorry for all of our loss. 

SOMERS ⏤ A shooting at Somers House has left three people dead, others injured and authorities to find the gunman while asking for the public’s help.

Shooting suspect still at large

However, deputies have not taken the suspect in the shooting into custody yet.

Deputies describe them as a Black man over six feet tall, wearing a light-colored hood sweatshirt, a department release states. 

“This appears to be a targeted and isolated incident,” the department states in its release. “We do not believe there is threat to the community at this time.”

Further, the department is asking the public to help find the suspect and bring them in.
