Two hospitalized after double shooting

Two people are hospitalized after a shooting at a busy intersection.

The shooting happened at the intersection of WT Harris Boulevard and Statesville Road.

Three people were in a car and police say two of those people were shot.

Officials say it appears they shot at each other both in, and outside of the car. Two officers were eating nearby when another patron said something was going on.

When police arrived officials say they saw one of the men about to shoot at the man who was already on the ground.

Officers stepped in, and helped the man putting a tourniquet on his bleeding leg.

He was taken to CMC and is in critical condition. Officers did find a number of weapons in the car.

Police told FOX 46, two of the people in the car do have criminal histories.
