KENNER, LA (WVUE) -

Kenner police said two teenagers were shot Monday afternoon on Williams Boulevard and after the shooting, investigators located a bag with a gun inside not far from the scene.

The shooting, which left a 19-year-old and a 16-year-old with non-life threatening injuries, prompted some businesses in the area of Williams and 34th Street to close.

"At 4101 Williams Blvd., we had an individual that dropped a bag that has a gun in it," Lt. Brian McGregor. 

Police said an altercation erupted just after 2:30 p.m. at Woodward Gym and the victims ran outside. Shots were fired, and the victims ran across Williams Boulevard, with one victim taking shelter at an IHOP while the other ran into Raising Cane's.

Both businesses were closed Monday afternoon.  

"We presently have some people detained. We have individuals here we are interviewing at the police department at this time to find out what occurred and see if we can make some arrests on this," Lt. Brian McGregor said. 

McGregor said the shooting could be related to "two rivalry groups". It is unclear if 

No further information was available.

Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser urges anyone with information to call Kenner Police Detective Aaron Savoie at (504) 712-2301 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
