The Denton Police Department is investigating a shooting that sent two women to the hospital with gunshot injuries late Tuesday, a department spokesperson said Wednesday morning.

Officers located two women, both age 20, around the 1200 block of East University Drive near North Ruddell Street while responding to a shooting call around 10:39 p.m. Tuesday.

Denton police spokesperson Amy Cunningham said the women’s injuries weren’t life-threatening. No one had been arrested in connection with the shooting as of Wednesday evening.

Multiple 911 callers reported the shooting, including convenience store employees in the area. Cunningham said the women went to a convenience store to seek help. She said the women didn’t know the shooter or shooters.

The Police Department last reported a shooting with injuries on Oct. 24, when two victims were shot, one fatally, in the 100 block of Duchess Drive.

Two men were arrested in connection with that homicide in late October, but the department is still investigating as detectives identified “multiple individuals” involved, according to a news release.
