A low-ranking police officer shot and injured two of his colleagues Saturday in Upper Egypt's Sohag governorate following a verbal argument.
The wounded police personnel, also of low-ranking status, were taken to Sohag University Hospital.
The wounds were described in preliminary police investigations as "direct shots," Al-Ahram Arabic website reported.
Police forces arrested the officer, who used his work pistol to shoot his colleagues near a police station.
The Sohag prosecution will question the officer over the incident later Saturday.
The nature of the argument was not immediately clear.
