The victim’s body was found on a dirt path between two homes.

As of late morning, deputies had several people in custody for questioning, Lt. Mike Munsey said. It was unclear if the detainees were
considered suspects or witnesses, according to Munsey.

Greg Beyer lives nearby. He heard sirens and came out to see what was going on.

“Six or seven police cars came up, and ambulance and a fire truck,” he said.

Beyer said the neighborhood is normally very quiet.

    I heard a gunshot at 9:03 and another one a minute or so later. I made note of the time because it's a sound we don't hear to often around here…
