LONG BEACH (CNS) - A fight between two women in Long Beach escalated into a shooting that left one of the women with non-life-threatening injuries to the upper body, authorities said Sunday.

The combatants were in two separate vehicles that pulled alongside each other at about 10:45 p.m. Saturday before both women exited their vehicles and began fighting, the Long Beach Police Department reported.

"During the fight, occupants of both vehicles fired guns at one another, striking the victim," the LBPD said. "The suspects fled the scene before police arrived."

Officers were dispatched to the area of Webster Avenue and Spring Street and located evidence, including bullet casings and strike marks, indicating that a shooting had occurred, police said.

Paramedics rushed the victim to a hospital, where she was expected to survive. Police said the shooting was under investigation.
