At least one person is being sought and two more were charged in connection with a shooting that left a woman injured in Lancaster County Wednesday night. 

According to the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office, the shooting occurred around 7 p.m. in the 100 block of Melton Park Circle. Deputies said two women were taken to Springs Memorial Hospital.  A 21-year-old woman was shot multiple times, but deputies said her injuries are not fatal and she is recovering in the hospital. The second woman was not shot or seriously injured, according to deputies. 

A video was posted on Facebook showing parts of the shooting, according to the sheriff's office. 

Deputies said a verbal dispute began between several women who met on Melton Park Circle. The argument then turned into a physical altercation, according to deputies. After the argument, a gun was discharged at least twice and the 21-year-old woman was struck, the sheriff's office said. 

A 2007 silver Lexus sport utility vehicle fled the scene after the shooting and was believed to be carrying the shooter. Deputies said shots were fired at the Lexus, but no one inside the vehicle was struck. The Lexus was found parked at a home on Carnes Alley Wednesday night and was seized by deputies, the sheriff's office said. 

Deputies said multiple bullet holes were seen in the Lexus. 

Foresio Jones, 24, is wanted for reportedly shooting the female victim, deputies say. Warrants have been issued and Jones is facing charges of attempted murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. 

Deputies describe Jones as 6-feet tall and around 175 pounds. 

Lewis Johnson Jr., 19, was arrested Thursday and charged with three counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. Deputies say Johnson was the person who allegedly fired shots at the Lexus as the driver fled the scene. Johnson was taken to the Lancaster County Detention Center. 

The sheriff's office issued a warrant for 18-year-old Zion Malik Twitty who was reportedly being held at the Lancaster County Detention Center for unrelated charges. Deputies said they found a pistol that was used by Johnson in the shooting stuffed into a couch at Twitty's apartment. The pistol was reported stolen from a burglary that occurred in Lancaster County earlier this year, the sheriff's office said. 

Twitty was issued a warrant of possession of a stolen pistol. 

Lancaster County Sheriff Barry Faile released this statement Friday:

“We are far from being done with this investigation. While this incident might be viewed by some as a single occurrence, during those few minutes on Melton Park Circle many different people did many different things.  We are examining this conduct to determine whether other crimes were committed and whether other charges should be made.”     

If you know Jones' whereabouts or have any information about this shooting, you're asked to call the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office at 802-283-3388.
