The victim was shot in the extremities with a handgun and was taken to Atrium Medical Center for treatment, Buchanan said.
Buchanan said Sunday that officials didn’t believe there was a threat to the community and this was an isolated incident between two people.
Police did arrest one person who was not involved in the shooting for having a weapon under disability. However, Buchanan declined to identify the victim or the person who was arrested who was found with a weapon and said the investigation is ongoing and that police were still working on the motive for the shooting.
Jay Frick, Traders World manager, said Sunday’s fight was an isolated incident.
“The police departments came in and did a wonderful job,” Frick said. “It was very much appreciated. We felt fortunate that nothing else happened.”
He said nothing like this had ever happened there before. The iconic flea market with its red barns and giraffes is easily seen by motorists on the east side of Interstate 75. Traders World opened in November 1984, according to its website.
Frick said the flea market plans to be open next weekend, March 21-22, as the facility has vendors who sell groceries, produce, medical, health and beauty aids.
