A 15-year-old was shot in the leg during a drug deal in a Bargersville neighborhood, and police arrested another teen who they say fired the gun.
The 15-year-old was planning to sell marijuana to another teen, who came to pick him up in his gated Bargersville neighborhood. The 16-year-old planning to buy the marijuana came with a friend, an 18-year-old who was carrying a gun.
A few moments later, the 15-year-old was running for help to a nearby relative’s house after he had been shot in the leg. And the 18-year-old who police said shot him would soon be arrested, just days after he had been released from the Johnson County Juvenile Detention Center on an unrelated case.
