    Mesquite Police are searching for clues and answers in an early morning shooting.

    Officers were called to a group fight that turned into a shooting at the Peachtree Apartments, in the 1400 block of South Peachtree Road, early Tuesday morning.

    Investigators say at least one person was shot and rushed to the hospital.

    Detectives focused part of their investigation on a Ford SUV in the apartment complex parking lot. Police are not saying who owns the SUV or whether it may belong to a victim or the shooter.

    A police lieutenant tells NBC5 that investigators are working to uncover if they have everyone involved in the shooting in custody.  Officers say there also could be more victims that haven’t be identified.

    At least three witnesses were taken to the police department for questioning.  Police expect to release more information after 8 a.m., Tuesday.
