MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A shooting that killed one man and injured two others at a gas station on 27th and Capitol is captured on surveillance cameras. 

Milwaukee forensics investigators were on the scene taking pictures and collecting evidence after the deadly shooting Thursday night. 

Milwaukee Police say around 10:00 p.m. there was an ongoing dispute between a group of men at the gas pumps. 

The fight escalates quickly and witnesses say as many as 10 shots were fired. 

Men can be seen ducking behind a car at the pump to avoid bullets as smoke from the gunshots rises into the air just feet from them. 

Customers inside the stores hear the shots and can be seen running and taking cover behind racks of chips hoping to miss the bullets. 

Three men were hit, a 41-year-old man was shot and killed and a 47-year-old man and a 48-year-old man had non-life threatening injuries. 

The late night shooting left customers shaken. 

"I don't even want to come back to this gas station. No don't even feel safe coming," said regular customer Mercedes Coles. 

Thursday's shooting is the ninth deadly shooting since the start of August and the seventh since Monday. Milwaukee Police are looking for a person of interest.
