SPRINGDALE, Ohio (FOX19) - A 15-year-old girl was shot in the parking lot outside BJs Restaurant Friday night, according to Springdale Police Chief Tom Wells.
The restaurant is connected to Tri-County Mall.
The girl was sitting in a vehicle with other young people when she was shot in the stomach, Wells says. She was transported to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
Police say the girl had non-life-threatening injuries.
Wells says he believes the girl was “awake and alert” but that he is unclear on her current condition.
Police received a report of a male suspect that ran from the scene, according to Wells. He says it’s possible as many as three other people were involved.
He adds the shooting appears to be random.
Springdale police are investigating.
