Police have arrested two men in connection with Friday’s shooting in the 2200-block of Quince Street and have issued arrest warrants for two more.

The incident occurred at about 4:15 p.m. Friday when police responded to a call of gunshots in the area. Police believe an altercation between two groups of people known to each other occurred in the alley to the west of Quince Street.  During the altercation, bear spray was deployed, followed by what police now believe to be a single gunshot.  All involved fled the scene.
