Around 8:30 AM, police received reports of gunfire for the 6800 block of 2nd Avenue Southwest.

Officers arrived at the scene and found an injured man and woman.

Witnesses told officers a black male in his mid-to-late-20s walked into an encampment and opened fire into a car, striking the man and a woman inside.
