Police do not have any suspects in custody at this time, Lieb said, and no description of a suspect is available. Lieb said he does not believe there is any danger to the public.

“It’s not our thinking at this time that this was a random act,” he said.

Lieb said several Woodstock Police officers were a few blocks away when the shooting happened. 

“Our officers were dealing with something over on the Square when they heard gunfire,” he said. 

Two people also called 911 to report hearing shots, according to the WPD.
