A woman called 911 saying her boyfriend had been injured.

Unified Police officials arrived to find one or more shell casings at the scene, but neither the caller or her boyfriend.

Gray said one person had been grazed by a bullet, and a male suspect had been badly beaten.

“When police arrived, the suspects were gone,” she said. “They kept saying they were going to the hospital, but they didn’t show up at a hospital, and were finally found in White City.”

Nearby James Moss Elementary was placed on temporary lockdown, which later was lifted.
