The Greenwood Police Department said officers responded to reports of gunfire on Nov. 14 at around 7:15 a.m. near Beadle Ave. Investigators found a juvenile with non-life-threatening injuries. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment and released.

Detectives arrested a 15-year-old suspect in connection to the shooting Tuesday morning. He was transported to the DJJ. A motive for the shooting is under investigation. Police said the victim and the suspect had an ongoing feud.

A warrant of the suspect’s home found clothing and a handgun that is believed to have been used. Police said the suspect had previous charges and was required to wear an ankle monitor. The monitor had been removed.
