Police have arrested 24-year-old Carlos Gonzalez Carril for shooting Blystone, along with 21-year-old Ryan Ehrman and a juvenile male. Carril is charged with attempted homicide.

Police say it started around 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday when Carril got into an argument with Blystone and the other two young men inside the Rural King. It then spilled out into the mall parking lot. Police paperwork says both groups flashed guns before getting into their cars. Shots were then fired.

Blystone and the other two young men went back inside the store after being shot.

One was shot in the back of the head and torso, one was shot in the torso, and one was shot back of the head. All three injuries were considered non-life-threatening.

When police interviewed Carril, he told them his driver's door was shot at by two of the victims and he shot back twice. But police could not find any bullet holes or damage to his car or injuries to him or any of his passengers.

It's not known right now how or why the fight began, but police say Carril knew the three people who were shot.
