It started as an argument over bullying, but ended up with a man and a teenage boy shot.

Now police are looking for the men who pulled the trigger.

It happened at Aspen Woods Apartments on Flat Shoals Road.

The details of how the altercation played out are still unfolding.

Jonathan Adams, a witness, said it all began with an argument that had been brewing since yesterday.

"A boy didn't want another student bullying his student, so they came to the bus stop with the parent of the little girl," Adams said.

The argument erupted again around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday when a group of teenagers began fighting.

Officer broke up that altercation.

Then, around 9:15 a.m., a gunman opened fire on a group of four people, striking a 21-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy.

Davion-Dre Moore, a witness, had just gotten off the bus on Flat Shoals Road when the shooting broke out.

"I heard about three. I ran," said Moore. "I didn't have time to get scared. I had a heart attack and started to run."

The shooter drove off in a dark SUV.

Police locked down the apartment complex, nearby Flat Shoals Elementary School and a day care center.

Police are looking for 32-year-old Corey Reese and 34-year-old John Reese.

Shameka Smith, who lives nearby, was terrified.

"I'm scared. I got a 3-year-old and a 6-year-old," Smith said. "That's my back door. A bullet could've flew through my back door and hit my baby."

Investigators said the shooter may have been defending someone.

Police also believe the victims appear to know the shooter.

The injuries to the victims were not life-threatening, according to police.
