Three suspects entered a Wayne County home on Monday demanding money and then began shooting – leaving three injured, the sheriff’s office said. 

On Monday around 11:37 p.m., a person said to be panic-stricken called the Wayne County 911 Center to report someone came into a home in a house on 107 Connies Walk in Dudley and began shooting. 

The caller said multiple people had been shot – resulting in deputies and EMS being called to the scene, the sheriff’s office said.
