Metro police are searching for a 17-year-old gunman they believe shot two teens outside of Robert E. Lillard Elementary School Thursday afternoon.
A 16-year-old and a 17-year-old, waiting on the school’s playground for their younger brother to leave school, suffered non-critical injuries Thursday after another 17-year-old allegedly fired three shotgun rounds at them.
The two injured teens told police that as they waited to meet their brother they saw a car pull up and the shooter — someone who one of the boys had a dispute with earlier in the day — get out of it.
The suspect grabbed a shotgun and fired three times at the two boys, hitting the 16-year-old in the foot and the 17-year-old in the calf.
The 17-year-old faces a Juvenile Court arrest order charging him with two counts of attempted homicide, one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of carrying a weapon on school property.
He has not been charged in adult court.
