At approximately 10:00 p.m. Sunday, STPSO deputies were dispatched to a residence in the 25000 block of West Spruce Street in Lacombe in reference to a shooting.

Responding deputies located two males with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. The victims told deputies an acquaintance, Patrick Amos, had shot them while he was arguing with one of the victims outside of the residence.
