GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) - Greer police said detectives are working to put together the pieces Tuesday after a shooting sent three people to the hospital overnight.

The incident happened at a house on Pleasant Drive just before 3 a.m.

Police said they found 3 victims suffering from gunshot wounds when they arrived. Those victims were taken to the hospital. Police did not know their conditions.

Lt. Patrick Fortenberry later said in an email that the victims included two men and a woman.

Fortenberry said investigators believe the shooting was as isolated incident and that there is no danger to the public.

Shortly before 8 a.m., two tow trucks arrived at the scene to carry away vehicles from the home. A black Jeep and a silver Dodge SUV were towed from the property.

A neighbor, who asked to remain anonymous, said the shooting happened in the driveway of the home.

“There were a few people in the driveway," the neighbor said.  "There was some arguing and I looked out the window because I heard it, and I saw a couple shots fired. It was dark so only saw the flashes I didn’t see who shot or who got injured.”

Police were seen speaking to the homeowner and another woman at the address before investigators cleared the scene, according to FOX Carolina's crew at te 

"Our detectives are still conducting interviews to determine the sequence of events that led up to the shooting," Fortenberry said. "This will be a time-consuming process. All parties involved in this incident have been identified, and our detectives are in the process of interviewing each person.

Fortenberry said detectives hope to have additional updates in the case on Wednesday.
