The TPD was already investigating a shooting that happened around 3 p.m. in the 5700 block of South 12th Avenue.

While the scenes are less than three miles apart, Dugan said the shootings are unrelated.

For the incident on West Aviation, Dugan said two men got into an argument and shots were fired. The victim was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries and the suspect fled the scene.

Police are still not sure if the two men exchanged gunfire, or if just one fired a gun.  According to TPD, detectives have not yet spoken to the man that was shot, to find out what he knows. 

Streets around West Aviation Drive scene were taped off.
