DeKalb County police investigated a double shooting on Shamrock Drive.

Police said they arrived on scene at about 8 p.m. Monday and found a man and a woman had been shot. Investigators said it happened at a boarding house where multiple people lived.

According to Lt. Mark Lavigne with DeKalb County police, the shooter and two victims all lived at the boarding house. An argument broke out between the residents and the suspect grabbed a gun and opened fire.

A male victim was shot inside the home, and the female victim ran for help.

"It appears the male was shot inside the residence," Lavigne said. "And the female tried to escape and ran out the front where the suspect came out the front door and shot at her, we believe two times."

The shooter is still at large. Police said the victims were taken to area hospitals in critical condition.
