A fight among a small group of people shopping at a Boyle Heights supermarket got into a fight that escalated into a shooting, leaving one woman wounded.

The incident took place Tuesday night at around 8:30 p.m. at the Food4Less at First and Mott streets, according to the Los Angeles Police Department, reports City News Service.

A young woman at the store with another woman and two men, all in their 20s, got into an argument with a woman in her 30s who was also shopping at the Food4Less. One of the men jumped into the squabble and fired a shot at the older woman, striking her in the leg.

The group of four fled the store in their vehicle, which was soon pulled over by authorities. Though all four attempted to flee on foot, they were all four ultimately taken into custody.
