The two people the run away.
Police said officers from the gang unit were nearby and witnessed the shooting at Waverly and Warren streets just before 3 p.m. The officers were able to take three people in for questioning, but no charges have been filed. One man was shot in the hand and at least one officer fired his gun during the shootout.
The investigation is still ongoing, police said.
