Wheeles said police believe the three men "arrived in the parking lot in vehicles" before an altercation took place, leading to the shooting. According to WDRB, police said there still were "a lot of leads to look into" in the investigation.

"This appears to be an isolated incident with no further threat to the public or anyone else at the facility," Wheeles said.

Bob Courtney, the mayor of Madison, told WDRB that the shooting took place in the parking lot of aluminum diecasting factory Madison Precision Products. The business is located just north of Madison city limits.

"We want to be very clear that this incident really didn't have anything to do with the facility that we're at, it just kind of ended up where the people involved ended up in this parking lot," he said. "So I want to make sure that's clear that it wasn't actually a workplace shooting where someone came to this facility to do harm to those working, it was an incident where something kind of spilled over and ended up here at this facility."

Kennedy and Redd were taken to the Jefferson County Jail.

"It's a tragic situation for all involved, and that's why you see the presence that we have here and the investigative tools that we are going through right now to make sure we get all those answers, a complete picture of what happened so we can provide that for the family," Wheeles said.
