MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Montgomery Police have arrested two young men in Friday's shooting, near the intersection of Vaughn Road and Bell Road. 

20 year olds David Wright, IV and Legestin Tyler Richards, II were captured near the East South Boulevard and Dorchester shortly after the shooting. The two are charged with first degree robbery.

Police were called to the Quick Serve Shell Gas station Friday, on the call of a subject shot.

An adult male received a gunshot wound to the chest - he was transported to a local hospital in life-threatening condition. Police say the victim is expected to make a full recovery.

Authorities on the scene called this incident a "drug deal gone bad."

The victim and two suspects met at the Quick Serve location for a drug deal - while police don't know exactly what happened, the exchange ended in gunfire. Marijuana was found spread on the ground where the victim was shot.
