FOLEY, Ala. (WALA) - Four people were wounded in a shootout that happened Sunday in Baldwin County.

Sheriff's Officials said three people are hospitalized in critical condition at University Hospital in Mobile and another person was treated and released from South Baldwin Regional Medical Center in Foley.

According to investigators, the shots were fired at a home on Springfield Court off of County Road 49. That's located in an area between Bon Secour and Magnolia Springs.

Baldwin County Sheriff Hoss Mack said deputies received a 911 call about the shooting around noon. While they were on their way to the scene, they received another call that several people with gunshot wounds had just arrived in a personal vehicle at South Baldwin Regional Medical Center in Foley. Mack said deputies quickly determined that both calls were connected to the same incident.

He said, "We have a total of four individuals who have been shot. One of the individuals that was shot was a resident of the location in Magnolia Springs. The other three individuals actually, apparently, left that location and drove themselves here to South Baldwin hospital."

The sheriff said one victim is a resident of the home on Springfield Court, while the other three victims were in the vehicle that arrived at the hospital in Foley.

Investigators are still working to determine exactly what happened before the shots were fired. But Mack said the shooting was not a random crime and that all of the people involved knew each other before the shooting. The sheriff also said that deputies are not searching for a suspect because everyone involved in the shootout is either in the hospital or in custody.

Three of the shooting victims were transferred to University Hospital in Mobile. The sheriff said they had serious wounds and needed treatment at a trauma center. One victim is still at South Baldwin Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The sheriff's office did not release the names of anyone involved. Mack said he expects to give more details during a news conference Monday morning.

At the shooting scene, a man said his neighbor told him he saw an SUV drive up to the home and open fire.

Another neighbor talked about watching a medical helicopter land in his neighbor's yard.

Bob Hannah said, "It scares the heck out of me that something like that could go down. And we don't know who did it, if it was somebody in the house or if it was somebody who came into the house."
