Knoxville (WVLT) -- Updating the shooting from earlier, two men are now reported to have been shot this afternoon following a parking lot fight at the Townview Terrace Apartments.

Police say that gunshots rang out as the circus was letting next door at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum at around 4 P.M.

When they arrived on scene, authorities found one of the victims in the parking lot in front of build B with a clean gunshot through his shoulder.

The second victim was taken by friends to Baptist Hospital with a gunshot wound through his jaw.

Police say neither victim suffered life threatening injuries.

An investigation is still on going but according to eye witnesses, the incident started as a fist fight between two women before someone pulled a gun.

KPD also says that a third man may have been shot in the hand, but they do not yet know if that is just a rumor resulting from confusing on the scene.

About an hour after police left the scene they were dispatched once again to break up a large fight in the same parking lot. One woman was taken to the hospital after having a seizure during the fight.
