Four Ohio teens implicated in attempted shooting

Four teens have been implicated in an attempted shooting on a number of individuals in Marion, Ohio.  The shooters include two 17-year old girls (one of whom has yet to be captured), a 16-year old boy, and a 13-year old boy.

The 17-year old girl in custody was the one who pulled the trigger, luckily missing the intended targets.

From an article:
Three juveniles are already in custody, Marion County Prosecutor Brent Yager said Friday.
"There was another person involved who we now think was more involved," he said of a 17-year-old girl police are trying to locate.
All four were allegedly involved in an attempted shooting Wednesday night in the 100 block of Latourette Street. Authorities are not releasing any of the juveniles' names.
Police responding to a report of shots fired shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday found a suspect being held down by a witness. Two other suspects immediately fled, and one was caught after a short foot chase.
The other juvenile, a 16-year-old male, was located and charged Friday. Yager said those charges are complicity in attempted murder, obstruction of justice and possibly tampering with evidence.
The 17-year-old girl in custody faces attempted murder charges, a second-degree felony.
Police reported she attempted to shoot a man, fired one round into the air and then tried to shoot the same man again, as well as two others. Police say the gun did not fire when pointed at the people.
A 13-year-old boy in custody faces the lesser charge of complicity, a third-degree offense, and obstructing official business. They are all being held at the Edward J. Ruzzo Juvenile Detention Center.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
