The first shooting took place around 6 p.m. (7 p.m. ET), when a woman was shot four times in an apartment complex parking lot, Matyas said. She was with her three children. The woman is in serious condition.
Shortly after 10 p.m. local time, two people were shot and killed at a car dealership, Matyas said.
"At this point we believe [they] were just here looking at a vehicle," Hadley said.
Then four people in two cars were shot and killed outside a Cracker Barrel restaurant a few miles away from the dealership, Matyas told WOOD.
"This is obviously a tragic event. Any time a community loses six people in senseless, random acts of violence, [it] is just tragedy for everyone," Hadley told WWMT. "It's really tough."
