The two gunshot victims were taken to Miami Valley Hospital, where neither was listed as a patient as of Thursday afternoon.

Surveillance footage of the area reportedly shows five people shooting at the man and woman after a brief altercation in the street. Colvin and Thompson-Rivers were identified in the footage using social media records, according to the affidavit.

“Both were in social media videos along with their clothing matching that of suspects from the surveillance footage,” the affidavit stated.

Arraignment dates have not been set for either man, according to court records.
