Once on scene, officers located three victims suffering from gunshot wounds. First aid measures were conducted by responding officers, and then taken over by Acadian Ambulance personnel.

All three victims were transported to a local hospital for further treatment. All the victims were listed in stable condition.

The suspect vehicle then fled the area.
