MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- A call to action tonight from authorities in Muskegon County as they try to find out "who" is responsible for a deadly, triple shooting.

It happened early Sunday morning at the Elks Lodge in Muskegon. Three people died, four others were injured. 

Right now Antonio Raglin is being held on weapons charges, but investigators say others were involved.

Police are looking for the driver of a silver car caught on survallence video. They say the driver ran over and killed, 20-year-old Jalisa Love, a mother of three. Wanda Love, Jalisa's mother, wants answers.

"My daughter was a very loving person," she says.  "She had three kids and she loved life itself."

Love and the two other victims, Jacolby Brown and Dupree Barnes, were at a memorial service when a gunfight broke out. Love ran, but police say this silver car ran her over and drove away. 

"I hope somebody would come forward to let us know," says Wanda Love.  "Why you would just run her over and leave?  Why didn't you call somebody to come help or comfort her? You just ran her over and left her like she was nothing."

Police say 100 people were at the Lodge during the shooting. Shalonda Brown, Jacolby's mother, is asking someone to come forward.

"If you have any sympathy at all for this please come forward and tell us why," says Brown

Glen Gray Jr. knew all three victims, including Dupree Barnes.

"Barnes was a stand up guy," says Gray. "Always had a smile on his face, stand-up-chest-out kind of guy.

Like many Gray wants the violence to end, and wants an explanation for why a mother of three won't be coming home tonight.

"I'm here to raise them which I'm going to do a good job, but I think she'd rather be here to raise her own kids," says Love.  "They're young and need their mother."

Police are looking for tips, you can call them at (231) 72-CRIME.
