COLUMBUS, Ohio — Two teenage girls were injured in a shooting Tuesday night as the result of what Columbus police are calling an ongoing dispute between neighbors.  

The shooting happened around 9 p.m. in the area of 66 S. Douglass Street.

Officers said there were two separate shooters. The first was charged and identified as a 32-year-old woman. Police described the second shooter as a man armed with a handgun, but did not provide specific information on his description at this time. 

According to police, the man shot into a car of four people, striking a 17-year-old girl. She was taken to Grant Medical Center in critical condition, but police say she is expected to survive.
