AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say an argument over a Facebook posting led to gunfire as two groups of women clashed at a Waffle House in Georgia. No injuries were reported.

Investigators tell WRDW-TV (http://bit.ly/Hjt1eD) they took one woman into custody after they say she fired four shots in the air outside the restaurant in Augusta around 5 a.m. Friday.

Sheriff's deputies were called to the scene. They said one group was inside the restaurant when another group approached and started an argument. They say the verbal fight was carried outside where one woman fired with a handgun.

Investigators say they think the argument stemmed from a post on Facebook that involved someone's relationship status. There were no more details.
