Female shot on South Side this afternoon

YOUNGSTOWN — A female who was shot in the hand on the South Side during a large fight is listed as stable at a local hospital.

Police responded to a call about a large fight at 3 p.m. at the corner of East Avondale and South Avenue today, but before officers could make it to the scene, the woman, whose age has not been given, was shot in the hand.

Officers cleared the area and had the woman taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Police are still on the scene and investigating the shooting.

The fight and shooting took place not far from Taft Elementary School, the location of another large fight earlier this year that resulted in multiple arrests and an extensive police investigation.
