Ohio 16 year old shot in a fight

An Ohio 16 year old has been killed during a fight:
A 16-year-old boy was killed after being shot on the far east side of Columbus Monday evening.
According to Columbus police, officers were called to the 3300 block of Suffield Drive on a report of a large fight at about 7:23 p.m. Monday.
Arriving officers and medic personnel located the victim, identified as Isaiah A. Giles, in front of a home in the area with at least one gunshot wound.
Giles transported to Grant Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 8 p.m.
According to detectives, the shooting occurred after a fight escalated and the participants pulled out weapons.
A police dispatcher said that Columbus police received a large number of calls regarding the shooting. A pizza delivery driver, who also called police, told dispatchers he began following a possible suspect.
This was the second time officers had been called to the area regarding a fight on Monday. Officers were dispatched to the same location at about 11:15 a.m. Detectives said that there was no indication of weapons at that time.
We don't know yet who the shooter was but it could have been another teen. Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
