A San Diego teenager was recovering Tuesday after being shot with an arrow fired by another teen in a dispute, police said.

The incident began with two teenagers throwing rocks at two other teens riding in a Toyota RAV4 in the Linda Vista neighborhood.

The vehicle stopped and one of the occupants fired an arrow from a crossbow "impaling [one of the other teens] on the right side of his torso," police said.

The Toyota sped off and the teenager with the arrow in his chest was taken to a hospital.
