He said the man and woman are a couple and got into an argument. It's not clear if the man and woman are married.

"A gun was produced and they start tussling over it," Maierle said. "The gun went off and hit both of them. The man was shot in the arm and the woman was shot in the neck."

The man's injury is non-life-threatening, the police captain said. Both were taken to a hospital to be treated.
