Two people have been hospitalized after a shooting early Saturday morning in Isabella County.

When deputies got to the apartment they found a party had been happening in the area. Shortly after it started a fight broke out and at least one person went to a vehicle and got a gun.

The person went back and started firing their weapon at or inside the apartment. Two men inside were hit by the shots.

A 23-year-old man was taken to a local emergency room in a private vehicle and is stable. A 20-year-old man was taken to the local E.R. in an ambulance.
