FORT WORTH — Two people were shot and wounded Tuesday in Arlington after a disturbance at a barbershop spilled out into a parking lot, Arlington police said.

The wounded man and woman drove away from the shooting scene to the 500 block of East Arkansas Lane in Arlington, where they flagged down a passing ambulance.

Their conditions were not available on Wednesday.

The incident started about 5:50 p.m. Tuesday at the barbershop in the 2500 block of East Arkansas Lane.

A disturbance between two parties erupted in the business and then escalated when everyone went outside to a parking lot, Arlington police said. Authorities did not release any information on what started the disturbance.

Once outside, someone fired multiple shots from at least one handgun, striking the victims.
