Four people are in the hospital after an early morning shooting.

The shooting took place about 4:20 a.m. at 19th Street and Highland Avenue outside of the Mutual Musicians Foundation. Police believe a fight broke out near a food truck outside of the foundation which escalated into the shooting.

Four people were shot and all were injured. Police said at least two of the four people suffered serious injuries.

Police said officers saw a white vehicle drop off one of the shooting victims and followed the vehicle until it wrecked at 33rd Street and Wayne Avenue. The driver ran, but was taken into custody a short time later.

Musicians who had been playing inside the foundation said no one inside was injured and they didn't know if the victims had ever been inside or if they happened to be walking by.

Police cleared the scene shortly before 9:30 a.m.
