Two men are in custody and facing charges in connection with the shooting in a parking lot in east Las Vegas Tuesday that injured three innocent bystanders, according to jail records.

Tyrone Eagland and Zachary Hewitt are facing charges or conspiracy to commit murder, assault with a deadly weapon, attempted murder, battery with a deadly weapon and discharging a gun into a occupied vehicle.

Metro Police put out a plea Wednesday afternoon for the shooters to turn themselves into authorities. It is unclear if the men turned themselves in or were identified and arrested.

According to police, the two men got into an argument in a shopping center parking lot at Nellis Boulevard and Stewart Avenue early Tuesday evening. More than 20 rounds were fired. A mother and daughter suffered non life-threatening gunshot wounds. Another woman who was driving by was grazed by a bullet.
