KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — Police say two people were wounded in a shooting at Florida mall, and two men in a car matching the suspects’ vehicle description were killed in a crash as they fled.

Police say the victims’ injuries aren’t life-threatening. They were shot Tuesday evening near Osceola Square Mall’s Ross Dress for Less store in Kissimmee, outside Orlando, after an argument in the store spilled outside.

Police say the gunmen got into a car and drove toward officers after the shooting. Officers heading to the scene saw a car speeding away and turned to follow it. The vehicle crashed into another car about three miles from the mall. Police say the men inside died from what appeared to be crash-related injuries.

Police say they’re not sure whether the men in the car were the gunmen.
