Police said two groups of people got into a fight in the 500 block of Sylvan Street at the James Cayce homes around 3 p.m. when the shooting occurred.

Five rounds were fired during the altercation by two different subjects.

One woman was struck by a bullet in her hip and transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Neither of their injuries are considered life-threatening.

Charges have yet to be filed.  The investigation is ongoing.
