ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

Two people were shot behind a Japanese steakhouse in St. Petersburg on Wednesday morning.

It happened steps from the Hiro Steakhouse Sushi Bar on 4th Street North, and police believe there are two gunmen on the run.

They say a group of people showed up at the restaurant looking for a fight with another group.

It may have stemmed from a fight at the restaurant the night before involving members of the staff or their friends, police said.

Both groups met in the parking lot and a brawl broke out. One man pulled out a gun and started firing into the crowd. Another man also started shooting.

An 18-year-old girl was shot and taken to the hospital. A 21-year-old man was also shot. Both are already out of the hospital.

Police say they did arrest one man who damaged a couple of cars with a baseball bat during the fight.
