SALINA, Kan. (AP) - Salina police say a 17-year-old girl was shot to death in a case of mistaken identity fueled by a group seeking revenge for a fistfight.

Police Chief Brad Nelson says Allie Saum of Salina died Wednesday when shots were fired at a truck she was riding in. Nelson says the alleged shooter incorrectly thought the truck’s driver, an 18-year-old male, was involved in an earlier fight with the shooter and others.

The 22-year-old shooter and four others were arrested and could face charges of conspiracy to commit felony murder. A woman was arrested on possible charges of felony obstruction and child endangerment.

The Salina Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1crtAsY ) Nelson said one shot hit Saum in the head. He says the truck driver had nothing to do with the earlier fight.
