Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio -

A 14-year-old girl was struck by a stray bullet after a fight broke out during a party Saturday night.

According to Columbus police, a "Tork" party was taking place Saturday at a facility at 4411 Tamarack Blvd., where most of the attendees were between the ages of 13 to 18 years old.

At about 10:45 p.m., police said, the facility became full and security began refusing entrance to other attendees. 

The people who were not allowed inside began getting angry and security used Mace several times to try to control the crowd.

Security then attempted to clear the establishment, but both crowds inside and outside got out of control and several fights began breaking out.

According to police, at this point, several people began shooting randomly at different locations outside the establishment.

A 14-year-old girl told police that she hid behind a large sign after leaving the party, heard several shots being fired and was then struck by stray bullet in the upper thigh.

The girl was taken to an area hospital in stable condition.

Assault unit detectives responded to the scene and at this time, there is no motive or suspects in the shooting.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Columbus police at 614-645-4141 or Crime Stoppers at 614-645-TIPS.
