When they arrived, officers discovered a man and woman lying in the street suffering from gunshot wounds.

After an investigation, police determined a physical altercation took place between numerous people. During the altercation, police said a 40-year-old man shot a 28-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman. 

After the 28-year-old was shot, he reportedly returned fire and struck the 40-year-old.
