Fire officials and a hospital spokeswoman said later Wednesday that a total of seven people were being treated there for gunshot wounds.

The welcome relief of showers will be with us this evening! They will continue to push through most places in the valley. Some places may not see some rain given their proximity to the mountains and the effects of a rain shadow
