Police responded to CJ Smith Skate Park located at 5 Glenn Street Saturday night for a shots fired call.

When they arrived, they found shell casings on the scene, along with witnesses.

The 15-year-old, witnesses told police, was shooting at another group of people after a previous dispute.


At 2 p.m., he was arrested and transported to a youth detention center pending his initial hearing.

Because of the suspect’s age, police did not provide a mugshot.

The suspect has been charged with five counts of aggravated assault, police said.

No one was injured as a result of the shooting.
