ORLANDO, Fla. — A 17-year-old was arrested Thursday and faces charges of attempted felony murder and possession of a firearm by a minor on suspicion of shooting and injuring four teens, Orlando police said.
Kenneth Hall is one of the teens accused of firing into a crowd at Willows Park near Silver Start Road in Pine Hills on Jan. 21, police said.
"I must say that it saddened me. Because as a mentor for children, and as an advocate for the Pine Hills Community Council and the Pine Hills community, it really saddened me, because safety first," said Sandra Fatmi, president of the Pine Hills Community Council.
Jay Shepherd, 13, was arrested Jan. 25 in connection with the shooting, investigators said. He faces charges of attempted felony murder with a firearm and aggravated assaulted with a firearm.
The teens' injuries were not life-threatening, investigators said.
Police said they do not expect to make any more arrests in the shooting.
Fatmi mentors teens in her after-school program and she's been urging teens to turn whispers about the shooting into information for police.
"I knew all along that you see something, say something would work and it would make a difference," Fatmi said. "It takes a while to build trust back again."
A motive behind the shooting has not been released.
