Metro Police investigated a shooting downtown Friday night.

It happened just before 7:55 p.m. in the 1500 block of 22nd Street.  Witnesses told police they heard people arguing before they heard shots fired in the area.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found a woman with a gunshot injury to her leg.  A teen boy was also suffering from a gunshot wound.

Both of them were taken to University Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect is still on the loose, police said.
