A man has been arrested in connection to the shooting of a juvenile Saturday.
Police responded to Willhaven Drive on Saturday and discovered a 15-year-old with a gunshot wound to his left leg. The following day police arrested Fachavis Tyrekel Bell, 28, on charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and reckless conduct.
Richmond County sheriff’s Sgt. Monica Belser said the teen was riding in a car with Bell and three others when Bell accidently fired a round striking the teen. Police said the shooting occurred in the 2800 block of Washington Road, but police were not notified until the victim was dropped off on Willhaven Drive.
