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.
