CLEVELAND — Police say a woman was killed and two other people were wounded when an argument at a Cleveland gas station escalated to a shootout.

Cleveland police say the 27-year-old woman was apparently involved in the argument early Sunday when her brother arrived at the gas station and intervened. Police say he and a 38-year-old man both drew guns and opened fire.

The woman was struck several times, suffering fatal injuries. A 26-year-old man at the gas station was shot in the arm, and a 49-year-old woman sitting a nearby bus stop was hit in the leg.

Police say both shooters left before officers arrived but were later arrested.
