Police located the Chevrolet Suburban in the parking lot of the Waffle House on Ringgold Road where they found two victims, Keone Scaife and Cardarius Ringer, with gun shot wounds in the vehicle. 

EMS and East Ridge Fire Rescue assessed the victims and their injuries and discovered that they were not life threatening.

Both victims were later transported to the hospital for treatment. East Ridge Police tell Channel 3 that multiple gun shots were on both sides of the vehicle.

East Ridge Criminal Investigators also discovered that two pane glass windows of the Regions Bank were damaged by multiple stray firearm projectiles.

East Ridge Police are investigating this incident .Anyone with knowledge of the incident is urged to contact East Ridge Police at 423-622-1725 or 423-867-0016.
