The Dothan Police Department responded to a shooting called in at 10:54 this morning in the 1100 block of Dellwood Avenue.
Upon arrival police were told by victims that two young black males had approached the yard they were standing in and words were exchanged when one of the victims told the suspects not to come into the yard.
According to the victims, one of the suspects then fired two rounds from a shotgun toward them. One victim, an adult male, received a small injury when a shotgun pellet hit his face beneath the left eye.
The second victim, also an adult male, received a minor injury on his foot. Investigators with the Violent Crimes Unit responded to the scene to collect evidence and take over the case.
Investigators have worked with the victims most of the day in hopes of identifying the suspects and say the case is still under investigation.
Police are asking anyone with information about the case or identity of the suspects to call the Dothan Police Department or Crime Stoppers 334-793-7000.
