According to the sheriff's office, deputies were called to the Carousel Mobile Home Park at 5410 N Falkenburg Road just after 1 a.m. 

Once they arrived, deputies found a man dead in a common area of the mobile home park. They located another man dead inside one of the mobile homes.

Inside the same mobile home was a female in her 60s with a gunshot wound. She was transported to a local hospital where she is alert and talking to detectives. 

A fourth victim, who is a male in his 20s, was also transported to the hospital with a gunshot wound. Both the female and male are in critical but stable condition.

Several people were believed to be inside the mobile home when the shooting occurred. The female victim is the only known resident of the home.

Resident Rafael Martinez said he heard five to six shots. He lives next door to the mobile home that was shot up.

"My window was right there. I didn't even want to look out because of the sound. It was right there. I didn't see anything but I heard everything," Martinez said.

Detectives are currently searching for suspects, conducting interviews with witnesses and preparing a search warrant in order to enter the mobile home and collect additional evidence. 

There does not appear to be any risk to the public or other residents living within the area.
