(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)  St. Joseph police are investigating a rolling dispute between two vehicles that ended up with shots being fired at the City Star convenience store.

Police say they were called out to the location at 22nd and Frederick around 6:45 after a report of shots fired. After talking with witnesses, they say it involved a dispute between people in two separate vehicles that had been shooting at each other while out on the road.

There were no injuries, which police say was lucky.

"When you're discharging a firearm, you don't know where the rounds are going to go," said SJPD Sgt. David Gross. "When you're shooting, you can injure innocent civilians in the process."

No word on how many shots in total were fired or where the incident began.

Police say they're looking for a red, four-door sedan, possibly a Ford or Chevy, and a silver vehicle that could have been a Dodge Caliber.

More hot and humid weather on the way for today with highs back in the upper 90s with some areas reaching triple digits. Use caution when spending time outside because heat index values will once again be in the triple digits for many. A cold front will start to approach our area tonight and stall to our north giving us a few chances for showers and thunderstorms overnight, however this activity will not be widespread. Temperatures will still be above average this weekend with highs in the 90s. A few lingering rain chances will continue this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry. The cold front will move through the area early next week giving us some much cooler temperatures. High will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
