COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Authorities are investigating a reported shooting at a Halloween party in an Ohio shopping center that wounded a woman.

Columbus police said officers were called to OhioHealth Doctors Hospital after the 19-year-old victim walked in for treatment.

She told officers that she was at a Halloween party in Great Western Shopping Center on the city’s west side when she was shot in the left leg.

Detectives found that invitation sent out via social media drew a crowd that was too large to manage. Police said a disagreement between people attending the party led to the shooting.

No arrests were immediately announced. Anyone with information is asked to call Columbus police or Central Ohio Crime Stoppers.
