A 25-year-old man from Sunset and an 18-year-old woman from Murray were expected to recover, Keller said in a prepared statement. The victims' names have not been released.
Officers responded to the call of shots fired about 3:30 a.m., Keller said.
Keller said there was a party going on in an apartment when the argument started.
"It got calmed down, and then it re-erupted, and then shots were fired," he said.
Keller said multiple agencies were helping in the investigation that temporarily closed 700 West from 3700 South to 3900 South. Details on the nature of the disagreement were not immediately released.
