PORTSMOUTH-Police say two men were shot during an argument in Portsmouth Wednesday night.

 

The men, 25 and 39 years old, were in separate cars at the intersection of Georgia Court and Peachtree Lane around 5:00 p.m. Police say they started arguing and then shots were fired.

There were other individuals in the area involved in the dispute, so detectives are working to determine who fired the guns, Det. Jan Clark told WVEC.com.

A firearm was recovered from the home of one of victims, Clark added.

The 25-year-old stayed there until police arrived. He was taken to the hospital with a gunshot to his leg. The second man was found at nearby convenience store and taken to the hospital for treatment.
