One person is in custody, and two people are being treated for gunshot wounds, following a shooting early Monday.

The incident was reported at 12:24 a.m., according to a city press release. The caller said shots were fired in the 6100 block of Brookwood Drive in the College Square neighborhood.

When officers arrived, the victims and offender were no longer there, according to the release. However, police located a “person of interest” a short distance from the area with two firearms. The person, an adult male, was taken into custody. Police have not released his name because he has not yet been formally charged, city spokeswoman Diana Klink said.
