Two people – a man and a woman – were shot and wounded on Monday night in the Bagatelle, San Juan area.

According to a police report, at about 9 pm, the couple from Sunshine Avenue in San Juan, were standing along Bagatelle Road when they were approached by gunmen who shot them. The gunmen then escaped.

The couple was taken to the hospital where they were treated. They currently are warded, and are said to be in stable condition.

Preliminary investigations reportedly have revealed that the shooting was part of an ongoing war between two rival gangs in the area.

It is believed that the couple was shot because they were not from that area.

Investigations are ongoing.
