GRAPEVINE, Texas — Updated at 9:30 p.m. with more information from Grapevine police.

Three people were shot near Grapevine Mills Boulevard and International Parkway in Grapevine around 4:45 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, police said.

Police said in a statement two men in a black Dodge Charger shot at two other men in a white Nissan Altima in a 7-Eleven parking lot at the 3500 block of Grapevine Mills Boulevard. After the shooting, the drivers of the Nissan headed toward Freeport Parkway, and the drivers of the Dodge went across the street to the Jack in the Box parking lot.

Grapevine Police drove to the Jack in the Box and said they found two men in the Dodge with gunshot wounds. An officer performed first aid to one of the men until paramedics arrived. Paramedics took both gunshot victims to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Grapevine with serious injuries.

Police said they found a gun on the ground, which led them to believe one of the suspects ran away. They started a perimeter search, aided by Coppell police and K9 units from Grapevine, Frisco, Prosper and Hickory Creek.

Then, police said a man approached a DFW Airport police officer 45 minutes later at the Shell gas station and told the officer a passenger in his Nissan had been shot multiple times. That passenger was taken to the hospital with serious injuries and the driver was held for questioning, police said.

Grapevine police said the two men found near DFW Airport were the same two men involved in the shooting at the 7-Eleven. Police said they found two guns and some drugs at the crime scene and think people in both cars shot at the other car. Later Tuesday night, police said they had "located all parties involved in the shooting." and there is no known danger to the public. 

Grapevine police arrested the driver of the Nissan for deadly conduct and took him to the Grapevine Detention Center. One of the men from the Dodge was cleared from the hospital and was also taken to the Grapevine Detention Center; his charges are pending, according to police.

Names of the suspects will be released after arraignment in Tarrant County.
