Authorities said they were also working to identify who they believe was an additional person at the scene based on another voice heard in the background of the 911 call.

"This is kind of a first. I've been to people struck by cars and I've been to shootings, but I haven't ever had this happen at the same time. Sad situation all around, for all the families," said Sgt. Kevin Morris.
