GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

We are learning more details about a Gulfport shooting that left two people injured Thursday. Sgt. Damon McDaniel, spokesman for the Gulfport Police Department, said the shooting stemmed from an argument between two men.

McDaniel said officers responded to the shooting outside the New Village Apartments on 34th Avenue around 10:45 a.m. That’s where police found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper torso.

McDaniel said the man was shot by Dominique Marquette Mikell, 23, while the two were arguing. The victim was reportedly the ex-boyfriend of Phyllis Elaine Frazier, 46.

McDaniel said Mikell accidentally shot himself in the groin area while he was trying to hide the gun. Officials say he handed the gun off to Frazier before leaving the scene in a vehicle.

McDaniel said Frazier was trying to flee the scene when she was stopped by Gulfport police. Officers found the gun on her and then learned she was a convicted felon, according to McDaniel.

The shooting victim was taken to the hospital in an ambulance to be treated for non-life threatening injuries, and Frazier was taken to the Gulfport Police Department for questioning.

McDaniel said officers later learned Mikell had been taken to an area hospital to be treated for his gunshot wound. While receiving treatment, Mikell was reportedly found to be in possession of marijuana.

Mikell was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and possession with the intent to distribute marijuana. His bond was set at $70,000.

Frazier was arrested and charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. Her bond was set at $25,000.
