Blocks from Yankee Stadium, a shooting broke out between food cart vendors who were arguing over a spot.

According to CBS New York, vendor Horace Coleman shot two bystanders before dropping his gun and surrendering. He was arrested by court officers in the area, who were on their lunch break.

Coleman, an ordained minister, reportedly owns a water stand in the concourse area.

The bullets hit two customers at a nearby diner. One unidentified 41-year-old man was shot multiple times and is in critical condition, while a 60-year-old unidentified man was shot in the midsection.

Mickey Bentson, a cousin of Coleman, told CBS New York: “He doesn’t curse. He doesn’t fight. He doesn’t to get in confrontations. It had to be him protecting himself in order to get out of that situation.”

The other food vendor was not identified.
