check triggered all of this. apparently a man came in, he was upset about a fee he had to pay and pulled out a gun. that has yet to be confirmed by authorities who are still on scene investigating. but they did tell me they're not looking for any suspects and this appears to be an isolated incident. >> deputies say around 1:30 this afternoon, shots were fired inside the tax office. we're told three males ended up with gunshot wounds. the shooter, the owner of the tax office, and an innocent bystander at the pawn shop next door. one of the men was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition. the other two are expected to be okay. detectives gathered evidence and spoke with witnesses, trying to find out what sparked all of this. but at this point, very little information about what led up to the shooting is being released. however, a man who works at the tax office and is cousins with the owner says he wrestled the gun away from the shooter who

>> my cousin was holding the gun like this. i had to keep the -- what do they call that, the muzzle of the gun away from me and my cousin and the guy. because we were tussling the gun, trying to get it out of his hand. that's why he probably got shot. >> pretty wild there. he went on to tell me his cousin is expected to be okay as well as that innocent bystander. the other man at last check was in critical condition. no word on if any arrests have been made. we will continue to ask investigators and keep you posted. >> thank you, justin. >> well, the homeless problem is taking center stage again in volusia county. right now, local leaders are meeting, talking about all their options to make sure something like this doesn't happen again. news 6 reporter loren korn continues to follow this ongoing issue. she joins us live in volusia now. what ideas are they throwing around tonight? >> well, tonight they'll be
