One man was injured Thursday night when an argument fueled an exchange of gunfire between several people in an apartment complex parking lot in the Midland area.


Deputies found the 20-year-old victim in a car that was stopped after it had fled the scene, sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said. Investigators were surveying hospitals to see if there were any other victims from the shootout.


“We may have more people who were shot that we don’t know yet,” Troyer said.


Several people were involved in an argument about 9:30 p.m. in the parking lot of the Woodmark Apartments in the 2400 block of 96th Street South, Troyer said.


The words led to gunfire. Troyer said several rounds were fired by several people wielding several weapons.


When the bullets stopped, everybody involved fled. Deputies stopped some suspects in the area.


In one car, they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound. They also found drugs. The car was towed for further investigation, Troyer said.


No arrests were immediately report but detectives were investigating.
