PONTIAC, Mich. – Three men have died and one is in serious condition following a quadruple shooting that occurred at the Spring Lake Village apartment complex on Wednesday night.

Police say at about 9:10 p.m. deputies discovered the bodies of the four victims on a front porch, inside a home and on the front lawn of a residence in the 200 block of Carriage Circle Drive.

According to authorities, the victim on the front porch was deceased upon their arrival. The remaining three victims were alive at that time and were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Two victims died at the hospital shortly after their arrival, officials said. The fourth victim, a 25-year-old man, is alive but in serious condition.

The three deceased victims have been identified as a 28-year-old man, a 29-year-old man and a 39-year-old man. All of the victims are from Pontiac, officials said.

A police investigation revealed that the four victims were engaged in an ongoing dispute with the shooter. Officials say an assault occurred among the five individuals back in 2014.

Police say the four victims were on the front porch of the shooter’s home on Wednesday night. The suspect then armed himself with a handgun, went outside and opened fire on the victims, officials said.
