Once the fight was over and the women were separated, it was found that Brazile had armed himself with a pistol. Richards then also pulled out his own pistol and the suspects shot at each other, wounding each other. In the process of shooting at each other, the suspects also shot Messrs. Moore and Adams. Adams was treated and released for a gunshot wound to the foot. Moore was treated for a gunshot wound to the torso. Brazile sustained a gunshot wound to the torso and is being treated at Ben Taub General Hospital.
