The person with blunt force trauma is expected to survive their injuries.

"The fire was popping and shooting out flames and stuff like that," Zepeda said.

At the crash scene, a mangled vehicle was seen in the middle of the road.

Late into the night, several deputies surrounded the office building where the shooting took place.

Outside the building, workers who were inside at the time couldn’t believe what happened.

"My co-worker called me right then and there and said there was an active shooter in the building, so to run," Meredith Pursell said.
