The victims were both in a car that crashed into a pole after the shooting.

Police said the suspect drove off in a black SUV.

Police believe some sort of a dispute between the victims and suspect preceded the shooting.

About two miles away from the scene of that shooting, a person was shot on Timberwood Drive. That victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Around the same time, police were called to I-240 near Millbranch Road where a woman was grazed by a bullet. Police are unsure if it was a case of road rage or if it was from another accident.
