During the fight, the Ontario woman pulled out a 9mm handgun "to avoid getting beaten up by the victim," police said. At some point in the scuffle, the gun went off, hitting the Nyssa woman in the leg.

The victim was taken to Saint Alphonsus, where police interviewed her. Her wound is not believed to be life-threatening.
