Two people were injured in separate shootings in Tallahassee between Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, according to the Tallahassee Police Department (TPD).

The latter occurred just before 11:30 a.m. when two people, a man and woman, were in a vehicle heading west on Miccosukee Road when "unknown suspect(s)" fired at them.

The man was struck and taken to the hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, an incident synopsis said.

It was not immediately clear if the couple and their vehicle were targeted. A TPD spokeswoman said it is "still under investigation."

No suspects have been arrested.

TPD: Thursday's shooting stems from argument

The former occurred Thursday afternoon at Springfield Apartments, where two adult men got into a verbal argument that escalated when one pulled out a gun and shot the other, according to TPD spokesperson Alicia Turner.

The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, an incident synopsis said. The suspect who has been identified by TPD has not been arrested.
