Teen Charged in Weekend Shooting to Be Arraigned

A 16-year-old boy charged in the shooting of another teen over the weekend in Rowley, Massachusetts, will be arraigned Thursday morning.

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. Police say he turned himself in Wednesday night.

He 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.

It was not immediately known if he has an attorney.
