COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A man has been charged in connection with a shooting near an Ohio elementary school that injured two people and led to a precautionary lockdown.

No students or staff at Liberty Elementary School in Columbus were injured or involved in the shooting Thursday afternoon. But police say a 14-year-old boy was shot in the thigh and a 20-year-old man was shot in the foot.

Police said in a statement that 48-year-old Arthur Valentine Jr., of Columbus, was arrested Friday on two charges of felonious assault in the shooting. Court records do not list an attorney for Valentine.

The injured adult and teenager were treated at hospitals and released.

Authorities have said the shooting resulted from an argument over a cellphone.




 FILE - This July 22, 2014, file photo shows Republican candidate for U.S. Senate David Perdue as he greets supporters in Atlanta, at his election-night watch party. Minutes after Perdue won his Republican Senate primary in Georgia, a grainy image of his Democratic rival Michelle Nunn was on Atlanta TV as a faceless voice slammed her as a rubber stamp for President Barack Obama. In turn, Democrats portray Perdue as a greedy executive who laid off workers. It’s all a clear indicator of what the next three months hold for a first-time Democratic candidate who may be the party's only hope for picking off a GOP-held Senate seat in November.
