On Thursday, investigators said they determined that two groups of people encountered each other inside the convenience store when they both pulled out guns and began firing.

Police said one group then fled in a car before crashing into an uninvolved vehicle and fleeing the area on foot.

Occupants of the uninvolved vehicle suffered minor injuries.

Police said the other group fled the area in a dark car.

No one was injured in the gunfight.

Investigators said they believe one of the groups of men attempted to flee the area in a car when they crashed into another vehicle.
