Police say the shooting happened in the 4700 block of Bessie Avenue. The suspect is an 18-year-old male.

The male victim was traveling east on Bessie with a 16-year-old female when a dark-colored vehicle traveling west almost struck them. After the vehicles parked, the suspect, who is the victims' neighbor, and another subject, initiated an argument. 

After hearing the argument, the parents of the 16-year-old female went outside. All four subjects were on the front porch when the suspect produced a gun and fired several shots. The male victim sustained a gunshot wound to his hip and the female victim was shot in the leg.

They were taken to hospitals and listed as stable. The 16-year-old female and her father were uninjured.

The suspect fled the scene and the investigation is ongoing.
