    ORLANDO, Fla. - Officials are investigating after they said a dispute between people in two vehicles led to a shootout Thursday afternoon.

    Deputies were called out to the 10000 block of Narcoossee Road just before 3 p.m. on reports of shots fired. 

    Upon arrival, officials learned that there had been an argument between the occupants of three vehicles in the parking lot, and shots had been fired.

    One of the vehicles involved crashed into a tree.

    Two of the occupants who were inside the vehicle ran into a 7-Eleven bathroom and were later apprehended, with one suffering from a "minor" gunshot wound, according to deputies.

    Deputies said a third person from the vehicle is still on the run.

    Officials do not know the whereabouts of the other two vehicles involved.

    Investigators said a bullet struck a window at Giovanni's Restaurant, but no one was injured. 

    "It was kind of chaotic," said bartender Christopher Tores. "Lots of cops (and) people wondering what was going on."

    Officials said a large amount of drugs was found in the parking lot where the incident began. 

    The incident remains under investigation.
