COCHISE COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Cochise County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) responded to a call about shots being fired near Desert Lilly in the Elfrida area, around 3 a.m. this morning.  According to CCSO an additional call came in from a woman stating she had been shot and was driving to the Elfrida CCSO substation for help.

CCSO deputies responded to the calls, finding the 34-year-old female who made the call, as well as two additional adult males – a 25-year-old and a 29-year-old.   According to deputies all three were suffering from gunshot wounds.

Agents from U.S. Border Patrol in Douglas and Willcox also responded to the calls, enlisting the help of a U.S. BP helicopter to search for suspects in the shooting.

The three gunshot victims were transported to a Tucson hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.  According to medical personnel at the hospital all three are reported to be in stable condition.

CCSO and Border Patrol have closed a section of Central Highway between Davis Road and Hopkins Road in order to gather evidence.  According to CCSO officials this closure will remain in place until further notice. 

Officials are also reporting that several people have been contacted and interviewed about the incident.  According to CCSO this shooting is an isolated incident involving several people that are known to local law enforcement, and has not been classified as an active shooter case.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.

    The Forest Service said Tuesday’s high winds, coupled with dry vegetation and low relative humidity – is a formula that can create massive wildfires. Like the Aspen Fire on Mt Lemmon that burned 84,000 acres in 2003.
