No students at Liberty Elementary School were injured or involved in the shooting, which occurred at about 3:30 p.m. Thursday in southeast Columbus. The school was locked down as a precaution.

No schoolchildren were outside at the time of the shooting, police said, and at no time were students of the school targeted or threatened.

Police said a 14-year-old boy and 20-year-old man were shot during a fight, but are expected to recover.

A warrant was issued for the 30-year-old man. A 32-year-old woman was arrested later and charged with helping the man flee the scene.
