Two injured in West Palm Beach arcade shooting


Two victims were hospitalized Sunday night after a shooting at the Palm Arcade in the 4600 block of Okeechobee Boulevard.

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a call about gunfire shortly after 7 p.m. and learned two unknown men had entered the arcade and shot two adults.

The victims were taken to a hospital. Their conditions were unknown, a PBSO spokeswoman said.

The PBSO had only vague information about the suspects and were interviewing witnesses. Detectives and crime scene investigators were on the scene.
