BALTIMORE — An argument led to a 14-year-old girl being shot outside a beauty salon in Baltimore.

On Thursday at about 5:24 p.m., Eastern District officers responded to a shooting in the 1700 block of E. North Avenue.

When officers arrived, they located a 14 year-old girl who had been shot in her right leg.

According to police, a dispute happened inside a beauty salon that spilled out onto the sidewalk where the 14-year-old was shot twice in the leg. Police say they are not sure if she was part of the initial dispute.

In a statement on Twitter, Mayor Brandon Scott said:

"I don't care what it is over no dispute that starts at a beauty salon should end in a 14 year old being shot. And every grown person who saw and knows what happened should be lining up to tell us. It could have been your daughter, sister or granddaughter."

She was taken to an area hospital and is in good condition.
