    A dispute between two teenage girls ended in gunfire Tuesday when one shot the other in the calf, police said.

    It was the latest in a string of incidents in which a child has been shot in Detroit.

    Detroit police spokesman John Roach said the fight between the girls, ages 13 and 14, started about 8 p.m. at a house on 24th Street near Michigan Avenue.

    At one point in the fight, the 14-year-old went into the house, got a .22-caliber handgun and shot the other girl, Roach said.

    The wounded girl was taken to a local hospital where she was listed in temporarily serious condition. The 14-year-old was taken into police custody, but no charges had been filed as of late Tuesday night.

    No adults were in the home at the time, Roach said.

    He said he did not know what the girls fought about, and that police are investigating the shooting.
