A 15-year-old girl was in custody Monday in connection with a shooting that wounded another teen in the buttocks on Sunday in North Charleston.
At around 7 p.m., police were called to Corley Drive and found a 15-year-old boy with a gunshot wound, according to police spokesman Spencer Pryor.
Witnesses told authorities a group of teenagers was in the area when the 15-year-old, whose identity was not released, was shot.
The boy told police a group of young people approached him outside his home and asked where his sister was, according to a police report. When he said he didn't know, a young man in the group pulled out a gun and started shooting at him as he tried to run away, police said.
The victim told police he had been in altercations with the gunman in the past but didn't know his name, police said.
The teen was transported to Medical University Hospital in a stable condition to be treated for a gunshot wound to the left side of his buttocks, police said.
Police did not say how they tied the 15-year-old girl to the incident. The girl, whose identity was not released due to her age, is charged with attempted murder and is being held in a juvenile detention facility, Pryor said.
The incident remains under investigation with additional arrests expected, Pryor said.
