Police have received a number of calls from victims from various locations in Henderson, the Henderson Police Department said in a press release. All five victims were found by police with gunshot wounds at the same location.
“It is believed that the suspects accidentally surrounded the city, shooting at the citizens without obvious motive,” the Henderson Police Department said.
Police say the suspects were described as white men in their 20s and 30s and white women in their twenties, both with tattoos or paint on their faces.
A 22-year-old man whose name has not been made public has been found dead in the apparent gunshot wound, police said. The four surviving victims, who ranged in age from 18 to 53, were taken to hospital and expected to survive.
The suspects were arrested on Thursday on independent charges by the Arizona Department of Homeland Security.
The department did not respond to CNN’s request for details of that person or the circumstances of his arrest.
