Investigators think the shooting may have had something to do with drugs. The people were trying to put together a timeline of the events that led to the fighting.
Officials are sure that all seven of the victims were meant to be killed. At the scene, police did find a number of guns and at least 70 shell casings. It was like a jail for some of the victims in the hospital.
Besides that, at least two homes were hit with gunshots. The police checked on the neighbors and saw that no one was hurt.
