HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - A physical altercation between two women led to gunfire at a Huntsville gas station Friday evening.

It happened at the Valero gas station on the 5100 block of Blue Spring Road just before 7 p.m.

Police said the victim's girlfriend got into a fight with another woman at the store. When the man attempted to break up the fight, another man at the scene pulled out a gun and fired at the victim.

The victim was struck once in the side, and was taken to Huntsville Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Matthew Latta works across the street from the gas station.

"At first, it started as a fistfight... with about 20 people there screaming and hollering," Latta said. "Working around here, it doesn't really inspire confidence to come into work and have to worry about whether something's going to happen."

Huntsville police are still investigating the incident. If you have any information about the fight or the shooting, you are asked to call the Huntsville Police Department.
