FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) -

Two people were shot at a coin laundry across from the the Florence/Boone County Skate Park Thursday. 

Police responded to the area of KY-18 near Cardinal Drive for reports of shots fired, a release by the Florence Police Department stated. Upon arrival, officers located two individuals suffering from gunshot wounds. 

Investigators said that two separate groups of people had an earlier dispute during the day. Both groups were at the location and started to argue. That is when police say the argument escalated and one individual showed a handgun, firing one round.

One victim was grazed in the hand and treated at the scene, officials stated. The other was shot in the abdomen and is undergoing surgery.
