COLUMBUS, Ohio – Police in Ohio say a woman shot another woman in a Victoria’s Secret PINK store packed with shoppers, apparently because of a fight with a man.
Columbus police say that the injured 23-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital in stable condition with a wound to the chest after the Thursday afternoon shooting.
Deputy Chief Thomas Quinlan tells The Columbus Dispatch the women had “bad blood” between them before she had an unexpected encounter at a PINK shop, which is part of the corporate family that includes Victoria’s Secret. The shooting occurred in a room above the shop, in the popular Easton Town Center shopping area, which prohibits firearms.
Police say the 22-year-old woman who fired was jailed on a felonious assault charge.
WSYX-TV reports that PINK says that it gives priority to safety and to cooperate with the investigation.
