A 16-year-old was arrested Sunday in connection with a shooting at an apartment complex Saturday.

The teen, whom the Post is not naming due to him being under 18 years of age, was arrested on charges of robbery with a firearm and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

The teen turned himself in to authorities.

Police had been searching for the suspect since Saturday afternoon when he and another 16-year-old were involved in an altercation at the Grove Apartments, located in the 2000 block of Southeast Lennard Road.

Witnesses said he left the area on foot, and police had initially thought he could be hiding in one of the apartments in the complex.

The victim’s relatives took him to a nearby hospital, where he was still being treated for his injuries Saturday night. Police did not release details on where or how many times he was shot.
