16-Year-Old Charged in Shooting in Rowley, Massachusetts

A 16-year-old boy is charged in the shooting of another teen over the weekend in Rowley, Massachusetts.

Police say an 18-year-old male was shot in the leg near a shopping plaza on Newburyport Turnpike Sunday afternoon. Another man also reported being shot at in the area.

Authorities had said a 16-year-old from Rowley was wanted in the shooting, but they did not release his identity due to his age.

Just after 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, police say the suspect turned himself in.

The teen faces charges including assault with intent to murder, assault and battery by a firearm, firing a gun within 500 feet of a dwelling and carrying a gun without a license.

He has been held at a juvenile detention center on $500,000 bail.

The suspect is due to be arraigned Thursday morning.
