A man and woman were both wounded in a shooting outside the Lighthouse Plaza on Friday night.
Police were called to the 300 block of Atlantic Avenue at 9:33 p.m. for a reports of a man shooting paintball guns, Sgt. Kevin Fair said.
But when officers arrived, they were told that shots from a firearm may have left people wounded.
While officers were investigating, a man and woman — both 30 years old and from the city — walked into the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center’s City Campus with gunshot wounds, Fair said.
The victims’ names were not released.
A witness told BreakingAC that a verbal argument between two women appeared to spark the gunfight.
At one point, others joined in. A man was seen hitting a woman right before the gunfire erupted, the witness said.
“I saw one guy shot in the leg,” said the witness, who asked not to be identified. “He was hobbling across the street as they were still shooting at him.”
There was a blood trail in the area. Police were seen going in to the Lighthouse Plaza with long guns. They came out later without anyone appearing to be injured or in custody.
