Pontiac — Two women and a man were shot Saturday afternoon at a party in Pontiac, police said.

The triple shooting took place about 2:45 p.m. at Siti Hall, an event center on the 500 block of North Perry, per a statement from the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.

Witnesses told police there was a "verbal argument between several females" before shots rang out. They arrived to the scene to learn that one victim had gone to McLaren Oakland with a gunshot wound to the leg. 

A second victim, a 51-year-old man, was found behind a gas station with a gunshot wound to his leg.

A short time later, a third victim arrived at McLaren Oakland with a gunshot wound to her ankle. 

The female victims are 21 and 29 years old, police say. 

Deputies found a number of spent shell casings "from various caliber firearms" in the Siti Hall parking lot.

The investigation yielded the name of a suspect, a 26-year-old Pontiac woman whose identity is known to police but hasn't yet been shared publicly. 

All three victims have been released from treatment, as police seek the suspect's arrest.
