Police said they arrived at the scene to find two victims suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. A 19 and 25-year old, who were both rushed to the hospital and last reported to be in stable condition.

“We found over 60 spent shell casings. Clearly two separate calibers. We know two separate caliber semi-automatic guns were fired” said Police Chief Inspector Scott Small.

According to investigators, surveillance video captured one of the victims as he ran into a corner store after being shot.

“You can clearly see the victim run to the back of the store, he had a gun in his hand, and he handed that gun off to another male. That male went outside of the store and put the gun into a parked vehicle” Scott added.

Police found the gun in the backseat of the car. The man who put it there was being held by police as a suspect. Both victims of the shooting are in the hospital, and also in police custody.
