Police say the suspect in the shooting of an Arsenal Tech student has surrendered to police.
Metro police officers say a 17-year-old female student shot on Oriental Street, on the west side of Arsenal Tech High School. Police say the girl’s injuries, reportedly to her arm or shoulder, are not believed to be life-threatening.
Detectives recovered the gun and clothes belonging to the 19-year-old male suspect, who they say was a former boyfriend of the victim. Family members say the man had threatened the girl in the past and there was a restraining order in place.
IPS Superintendent Dr. Lewis Ferebee says the suspect is not a student at the school, the victim is a senior at Arsenal Tech.
