A police report says that officers responded to the shooting on Aug. 13 and located multiple witnesses, victims, damaged property and around 40 shell casings.
All of the victims had non-life-threatening injuries and were treated at the scene.
Officers located bullet damage on three vehicles parked in the parking lot as a result of the shooting.
Additionally, bullet damage was found on the Quality Inn Motel at South Futrall Drive.
A police report said that the bullets that struck the motel went through several rooms and struck the wall above where an occupant was sleeping. No injuries were reported at the motel.
