According to Jackson, three males, ranging in age from their 20s to around 50, were located outside the residence and pronounced dead at the scene.
Three other victims were rushed to area trauma facilities and were reportedly in stable condition.

One person of interest was reportedly in custody in connection with the incident.
“This was an interpersonal dispute so I want to assure the community there is no public safety threat,” Jackson said, noting the shooting unusual for the part of the city where the home is located.
Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley called the deadly incident “an example of, yet again, senseless violence.”
“People trying to resolve issues with guns – it is the most ridiculous thing we can do as a society,” Buckley said. “We have to do things to stop this.”
