Police have arrested two people in connection with a shooting Sunday at a Detroit gas station that left multiple people injured.

A woman was caught on camera opening fire on a vehicle around 4:30 a.m. after the Dodge Charger she was riding in pulled up to the gas station on Fenkell and Greenfield.

The woman was with four other people traveling in the Charger when they drove up alongside a green Pontiac Grand Prix.

Police say an argument started between the people in both cars and that's when the woman pulled out a gun and fired several shots at the driver. The driver then ran over one of the men on the scene while trying to escape. 

The whole incident was captured with high resolution cameras monitored back at police headquarters as part of the city's new project Green Light Program. Through the program, DPD has partnered with a number of gas stations in specific neighborhoods to install high-resolution cameras. 

The incident ended with both drivers speeding off after a man wrestled the gun away.  Shortly after, all occupants in the Grand Prix returned to the scene and surrendered the weapon.

The driver who was shot was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.

No word on the condition of the man who was hit and run over.

We're told the woman shooter and another person involved in the altercation have been arrested.
