WE ARE LIVE AT THE BEER SHED. WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS? WHAT STARTED THIS WHOLE THING? Reporter: YEAH, HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED. WE TALKED TO SOME FOLKS WHO ARRIVED JUST SHORTLY AFTER THAT SHOOTING OCCURRED HERE AND THEY TELL US THAT ALL OF THIS WAS AN ARGUMENT OVER A DOG. ALL RIGHT, LET’S TAKE YOU TO SOME OF THE SCENE VIDEO HERE. IT HAPPENED ABOUT 6:30 TONIGHT. DEPUTIES TELL US THAT TWO BROTHERS GOT INTO A FIGHT WITH THE BAR’S OWNER AND ONE OF THEM HAD A BASEBALL BAT. WELL, THE OWNER HAD A GUN. THE GUY WITH THE BAT WAS SHOT IN THE ARM. THE OTHER BROTHER TRIED TO INTERVENE AND HE WAS SHOT, WE’RE TOLD, IN THE CHEST. THIS HAPPENED IN THE ROADWAY OUTSIDE THE ACTUAL BAR ITSELF. NOW, I DID TALK TO THAT COUPLE WHO SHOWED UP MOMENTS AFTER IT HAPPENED. THEY ARE PARAMEDICS AND THEY ADMINISTERED HELP TO ONE OF THOSE MEN WHO WAS SHOT AND THEY TELL ME AGAIN WORD IS THIS STARTED ABOUT AN ARGUMENT OVER A DOG. THEY GOT INTO AN ALTERCATION AND KIND OF ESCALATED AND TURNED TO THAT. I GUESS THE SHOOTER HAD TRIED TO STOP HIM, TRIED TO WARN HIM AWAY, GET HIM AWAY, BUT — Reporter: AND AGAIN THOSE TWO BROTHERS WERE TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL. WE DON’T HAVE ANY WORD ON THEIR CONDITIONS RIGHT NOW BUT WE CAN TELL YOU THAT AGAIN IT HAPPENED IN THE ROADWAY, NOT INSIDE THE BAR, SO NO PATRONS IN THE BAR WERE ACTUALLY HURT. IN FACT, FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE INVESTIGATION FROM THE SHERIFF’S
