According to police, a female suspect was arguing with the couple in the doorway of the apartment shortly before the shooting. That’s when, police say, the man closed the door and the woman fired a gunshot through the door, striking one of the victims in the neck and the other in the back. The suspect fled the scene and was not captured.

The man, 25, and woman, 26, were taken by EMS to Brooke Army Medical Center, where they are both listed in critical condition.
