One shot, one injured after wreck in Brown County

BROWN COUNTY, Ohio (FOX19) - A woman was shot and a male is injured after three vehicles tried to run each other off the road on U.S. 52 West Sunday morning, according to Brown County dispatchers.

Dispatchers say this all started at the Brown County/Adams County border around 8:15 a.m.

“There’s three cars chasing each other,” a 911 caller said. “They’re wrecking each other and banging each other up.”

A crash followed, and the situation apparently escalated.

“This woman says she was shot in the arm or something," a different 911 caller said. "And there’s two men fighting, and it looked like a car wreck when I stopped.”

The woman was transported by Air Care to a nearby hospital, dispatchers say.

They say the man was not shot, but was injured due to the car accident and was assaulted with brass knuckles. He was ground-transported to a nearby hospital.

One person is detained, said dispatchers.

No further details have been released.
