LANCASTER, Wis. (AP) -- A 15-year-old girl is charged in Grant County with carrying through on a threat she made to another teen on the Web site MySpace. 

Prosecutors say Andrea Haskins shot a 17-year-old girl in the leg in Boscobel after arguing with her on MySpace.

A criminal complaint charging Haskins in adult court with attempted first-degree homicide says she told Amanda Knoble on MySpace that she would shoot her if she came over to her house. 

When Knoble drove near her home Tuesday with two other girls, police say Haskins came out of her house with a rifle and shot Knoble in the lower leg. 

A witness called 911 and Haskins was arrested. 

Knoble was taken to Boscobel Area Health Care and then airlifted to a Madison hospital.
