The shooting left two Land O' Lakes High School students with minor injuries.

They say the shooting happened early Saturday morning in the Lake Padgett Estates area. PCSO says the shooting involved multiple Land O' Lakes High School students, and they believe all parties involved were juveniles known to each other.

The sheriff's office released surveillance footage from a home in the Lake Padgett Estates neighborhood which shows a vehicle they believe is involved. They say it appears to be a black BMW four-door sedan.
