It happened behind Sharp Communications, at 3403 Governors Drive SW. The two were employees of Sharp Communications, but Trey Sharp, the company's CEO, said the sale had nothing to do with the business.

One person was hurt in the hand and the other was hurt in the stomach.

Sharp said HEMSI paramedics took both to a nearby hospital.

Several police cars were present following the shooting, but Sharp said they were there for business reasons.  Sharp Communications sells communications equipment to various businesses, including police.
