A 13-year-old boy shot a 14-year-old boy, both rival gang members, on Sunday in North Charleston, according to North Charleston police.
The child, who was not identified by police, received a gunshot wound to the right arm and was transported to Medical University Hospital for treatment, officials said.
The suspect, who was also not identified by police because he's a juvenile, was arrested and taken into juvenile custody. He was charged with assault and battery with intent to kill, police said.
At 1 p.m., the two teens were in the car of a 61-year-old man, who's relationship to the teens remains unclear, when the 13-year-old shot the other teen, according to an incident report. It happened near Accabee Road and Appleton Avenue, officials said.
The suspect is a member of "Young Goons" and the alleged victim is a member of the "Young Gunnas," the report stated. The teens were arguing over the rival gangs, police said.
After the shooting, the suspect ran off, but police later found him and the handgun used to shoot the teen, according to police.
