ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- Police arrest two men in connection with the shooting of a 17-year-old girl who walked into a hospital emergency room to get help.

Darious McClendon, 20, is charged with domestic battery, unlawful restraint, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and having no FOID card.

Lamarious Hollingshed, 19, will face charges of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, having no FOID card, resisting a peace officer and driving on a suspended license.

Investigators say the victim told them she was shot during a fight with her ex-boyfriend, McClendon. He was taken into custody in the 1400 block of Barton Boulevard.

After further questioning, officers say they determined Hollingshed was in the home during the fight. But, when they tried to arrest Hollingshed in the 2000 block of Overdene Avenue, he struggled with officers and a loaded handgun was found.

The female victim's injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening.
