Police said four people were shot, with one refusing transport to the hospital.

The gunman was at the party and knew the victims, Knouse said. A female victim suffered life-threatening injuries, a male victim suffered potentially life-threatening injuries and another female suffered serious injuries, according to officials.

It's believed the shooter in this case acted alone, and police said they're not seeking any further suspects. Knouse said specifics regarding charges against the suspect couldn't be discussed at this time.
