Police have made an arrest in a shooting after two people were wounded by gunfire in the parking lot of a strip shopping center in Copperas Cove.

Tamarcus Jaques Scott was arrested shortly after the shooting and facing a charge or aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, police said Friday.

After the shooting, police released surveillance photos of five suspects.

Officers responded to a report of shots fired at around 12:20 a.m. Sunday at the Cove Terrace Shopping Center at 314 Cove Terrace.

They determined that an altercation that started in a business in the shopping center moved to the parking lot where multiple shots were fired, police said Tuesday.

Meanwhile police received a report from AdventHealth Central Texas in Killeen about a gunshot victim.

“It was later learned that there were actually two victims being treated for non-life-threatening injuries,” police said.

Police think the three suspects fled in a gray Hyundai sedan.

Investigators are asking anyone with information to call Det. Counter at (254) 547-8222 Ext. 6894 or Crime Stoppers at (254) 547-1111.
