Man sought in shooting near Ohio school

School violence

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Police in Columbus are seeking a 30-year-old man they believe fired shots outside an elementary school that injured two people.

No students at Liberty Elementary School were injured or involved in the shooting, which occurred at about 3:30 p.m. Thursday in southeast Columbus. The school was locked down as a precaution.

No schoolchildren were outside at the time of the shooting, police said, and at no time were students of the school targeted or threatened.

Police said a 14-year-old boy and 20-year-old man were shot during a fight, but are expected to recover.

A warrant was issued for the 30-year-old man. A 32-year-old woman was arrested later and charged with helping the man flee the scene.
