    A teenager has been hospitalized after a shooting in Arlington that may have began with a fight over a girl, police say.

    According to police, a teenage boy was visiting a relative at a south Arlington apartment complex when he got into an argument with another person who pulled out a gun and shot him.

    The teen and the gunman knew each other and had a history of encounters, police said.

    A friend attempted to take the victim to a hospital, but his car ran out of gas along the way.  An Arlington ambulance arrived and transported the victim to an area hospital where he is receiving treatment.

    The teen is expected to survive and is being interviewed by police.

    At this time no arrests have been made, though police expect that to change since the victim knew the gunman.

    Neither the ages or names of the two involved in the shooting have been released by officials.
