At around 8 p.m., officers responded to the Super-Lo along South Perkins Road where two men were shot. One was in critical condition and the other non-critical.

The woman’s brother showed up with a weapon, reports say.
Detectives say he made a beeline for the driver of the vehicle that almost collided with his sister’s car. More words were exchanged, followed by an exchange of gunfire, witnesses reported.
The woman’s brother was critically injured after being shot in the face. The other man was hit in the leg, but expected to be okay.
As both men were rushed to hospitals, police launched an investigation. Nine shell casings were recovered along with surveillance video.
