An argument that initially started over fruit snacks led to two men being shot by one bullet Saturday night.

The fight began at around 9 p.m. at Ashley Lane Apartments, 2250 S. Oliver. Officer Charley Davidson said Monday that while the initial argument was about fruit snacks, other things came up between the 25-year-old resident and his 23-year-old brother.

The 25-year-old hit his brother in the head with a handgun. It discharged once, hitting the 23-year-old in the shoulder and a 36-year-old man in his leg, Davidson said. It wasn’t immediately clear if the men were grazed with the bullet, but Davidson said they had minor, non-life-threatening injuries.

Both were taken to the hospital Saturday. Police are still looking for the 25-year-old, Davidson said.
