Just past 3:30 a.m., officers arrived at 5574 Atlantic Ave. and found a security guard suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the lower body, police said.
Police said the victim stated she was working as a security guard when two men approached the business after exiting a vehicle. After a brief exchange of words, both the security guard and one of the men fired their guns at each other, and the security guard was hit as a result, police said.
The men fled in a vehicle driven by a third suspect before officers arrived, police said.
No other injuries were reported, and police don’t have additional suspect information. The investigation of this shooting remains ongoing, police said.
