Both victims were taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, where they were treated and released, police said.

Police obtained information about two suspects and found them in the area of the shooting, according to a police news release.

A 36-year-old Lawrence man was arrested for striking the woman with a glass bottle and was booked into the Douglas County Jail on suspicion of aggravated battery. The second man, 44, also of Lawrence, is suspected of firing the gunshot and was booked on suspicion of attempted murder.

During a search police recovered a gun and a glass bottle they think were used as weapons. Formal charges were pending, and no other information was released late Sunday night. Police referred additional questions to the Douglas County District Attorney's Office.
