LEESBURG, Fla. (AP) - Police say one person has been killed and another injured in a shooting outside a Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits restaurant in Leesburg.

Leesburg Police Maj. Steve Rockefeller tells local media that a male and a female were sitting in a car outside the restaurant Thursday night when two people who knew the female came up to the car and fired into the vehicle.

Rockefeller says the male was killed. The female, who was injured, was airlifted to a hospital.

Authorities say the two suspects drove away from the scene, but were stopped by police further west in Leesburg. One male suspect was taken into custody, while the other suspect ran away. Police are searching the area for him.

The names and ages of those involved were not immediately released.
