CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A 14-year-old is hospitalized Monday night after a shooting in Delhi, according to police.

It happened at Anderson Ferry Road and Foley Road shortly before 6:10 p.m.

Officers found the teenager shot in the leg. EMS transported him with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say an argument among juveniles earlier in the day continued to the scene and precipitated the shooting.

“It was like a carload that came over to this address to confront to juvenile,” explained Lt. Richard Schmalz.

The teenager was targeted, and the shooting was not a random act, police say.

Lt. Schmalz says the suspect took off in an SUV but later got out and took off running.

A K-9 was brought in to track the person who ran and during the search, a gun was found nearby, he said.

Lt. Schmalz says seven other people thought to be involved in the incident stayed in the car and were detained by police for questioning.

The search continues for the suspect is ongoing.

In the meantime, police say they are reviewing videos from home surveillance cameras in the area to locate their possible suspect.
