The argument then turned into a physical fight, police said. Dixon allegedly chased the victims with a gun and shot them. The victims survived. 

Video footage released by the LAPD shows a man chasing two people in a crowded area and appearing to fire a weapon.  

“Both victims sustained significant wounds from the gunshots and were hospitalized for their injuries,” police said. 

Authorities are still searching for Dixon, who is considered armed and dangerous.
