An Oakwood store owner allegedly fired a gun Monday evening during a fight between two people and an employee, police said. 

Oakwood Police received a report of a possible gunman and a person shot around 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 28, at the College Square shopping center on Mundy Mill Road.  

Patrol division commander Todd Templeton said two people, Esmeralda Martinez-Valdez and Raul Antonio Rios, started fighting with a store owner and an employee at the Boost Mobile store. 

During the fight, the store owner fired a gun once, Templeton said. 

Rios received a non-life-threatening injury from the fight, but he declined treatment. 

Templeton said police believe the injury was not from the gunshot. 

Martinez-Valdez and Rios were charged with assaulting the store owner and employee, Templeton said. 

The investigation is ongoing, and additional charges are possible, Templeton said. 

Templeton did not have any new information Tuesday, Sept. 29.
