June 25, 2021 GMT

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A shooting on an interstate highway in Ohio has left four people wounded, including two children.

The shooting on I-670 westbound in Columbus was reported around 11:45 a.m. Friday and apparently stemmed from an argument that occurred near the Easton Town Centre mall. Authorities said it appeared the victims were targeted, but further details about the shooting and the initial dispute have not been released.

The victims, who were riding in an SUV, soon exited the highway and flagged down a police officer who was working at a road construction site. Two adults and a child initially were hospitalized in critical condition, though all three were later upgraded to stable.

Another child was treated at the hospital for undisclosed minor injuries, while a third child in the SUV was unharmed. None of the victims’ names have been released.

The incident remains under investigation.
