FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Frederick police have arrested a 13-year-old boy in a Fourth of July shooting that left a 15-year-old girl injured.
Authorities said the suspect was located late Saturday and taken to a juvenile detention center on Sunday.
He is facing several charges, including assault, reckless endangerment, and possession of a firearm by a minor.
