It has been confirmed he hit at least 2 of the subjects, killing one of them. The second suspect turned up at an area hospital a short time later. Police say a third suspect may have also been wounded.

The victim was also wounded, being shot once in the back, but his injuries are reported as being relatively minor and he was released from the hospital shortly after receiving treatment.

Police say there could be as many as 3 of the suspects still on the street. The wounded suspect will be charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
