Fayette County officials investigate double shooting

Monday afternoon, Fayette County Sheriff's Deputies were called to the scene of a double shooting. Both a man and a woman had been shot. Both were taken to the hospital.

Investigators said they believe the shooting might have started as a simple argument before escalating to the point of gunfire.

According to the sheriff's department, their investigation found the shooting victims are also the shooters. Police believe the two shot each other.

"Well, I'm going to tell you. It's a sad situation. Things...it could've been stopped last night. But you know it's just an ongoing thing. And folks just looked over it you know. They just looked over it," neighbor Herman Lewis said.

Investigators said it is possible the two people in the hospital could face charges.

The sheriff's department said it has not yet made that decision.
