GOSHEN, Ind. (AP) - Police officers responded Thursday afternoon to reports of as many as 35 people shot in a factory in an industrial park, the city's mayor said.
Mayor Allan Kauffman said he did not know whether anyone had been killed or how serious the injuries were.
Police were working to secure the area, he said about 3:15 p.m. EST.
``They don't know if the shooter or shooters are still in the area,'' Kauffman said. ``As of this minute the area is still not secured, so they don't know if the shooter is still there or not.''
Kauffman said he did not know for certain at which factory the shooting had occurred.
Goshen General Hospital went on alert and was preparing for multiple patients in need of medical treatment, said Virginia Forgey, a hospital marketing assistant.
Forgey did not know whether anyone had come through their emergency facility.
A Goshen police dispatcher would not provide any immediate information, but said that all officers were being called in.
Officers from several departments were being sent to the scene, Indiana State Police said.
