LIMA — One woman is in hospital after a shooting Thursday evening in Lima.
At 8:17 p.m., several gunshots could be heard coming from the 600 block of Prospect Avenue on Lima’s east side. According to a release from Lima Police Detective Steve Stechschulte sent early Friday, officers were dispatched a few minutes later and found that Kellie Parsons, 21, of Liberty Center, had been shot.
According to the release, four or five juvenile males had approached a residence she was visiting and started speaking to guests in front of the building. After an argument began, the males took out firearms and began shooting at the residence, fleeing from the scene but continuing to shoot as they fled. Two houses and a vehicle were struck by bullets, and investigators believe that more than 20 shots were fired during the incident.
