Two people are behind bars after an argument at a gas station ended with shots fired.

According to Senior Trooper Jody Cash with Kentucky State Police, Hushton Burton and Jennifer Boyd had been in a verbal argument in the parking lot of a gas station near exit 45 of Interstate 24 in Lyon County.

Witnesses said that as Boyd tried to leave in her vehicle, Burton fired two shots from a handgun toward her. Cash said there were two small kids in Boyd's vehicle at the time.
