Shots were fired at Oasis Mobile Home Park, according to police.

Janice Lindsay lives in the park and recalls hearing gunshots shortly after being woken up by a power outage.

“I heard somebody yelling and then a couple of bangs, and I said to my husband, ‘I just heard gunshots, I’m sure’… and he said, ‘Well, the cops are probably going to be around,'” she said.

Several residents subdued the shooter until officers arrived, police said.
