COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) --Columbus police have only a vague description of a suspect--a man who ran from the scene of a shooting that killed a teenage girl.

Amanda M. Kirwin died a short time after the shooting in the 100 block of Dana Ave., near Town St. in Franklinton just before midnight Monday.

Police say Kirwin was outside with a group of friends when she was hit by the gunfire, apparently intended for someone else.

No one else in the group was hurt.

It's believed the shots came from a vacant lot across the street.

Anyone with information is asked to call Columbus Police Homicide at 614-645-4730 or Crimestoppers at 645-TIPS.
