The victims range from age 12 to 27, reports WINK TV. Police are still working to identify the deceased. 

Details are still coming in, but authorities told CNN that an all-out search for those involved is currently underway, and three adults have been detained in relation to the shooting.

Police at this time are not sure of any motives, but the suspects are being questioned.
