    ORLANDO, Fla. - A 13-year-old was arrested Thursday in connection with the shooting of four juveniles over the weekend, Orlando police said.

    Jay Shepherd was arrested on a warrant for attempted felony murder with a firearm and aggravated assault with a firearm.

    Three teenage girls were shot in the leg Sunday evening near Willows Park, police said.

    A fourth victim with a gunshot wound later arrived at the hospital.

    Their injuries were not life-threatening.

    A 911 caller reported there were three gunmen in the shooting.

    Shepherd was in court for a detention hearing Friday where he was charged.

    Sandra Fatmi, the president of the Pine Hills Community Council, said that after the shooting, more people are sharing what they know.

    “They’re making phone calls. Not as (much) we would like them to come in, but they’re certainly making some calls,” she said.

    A resident said adults and children have been afraid to go to the park since the shooting.  

    Orlando police said they have increased patrols and are looking for two other suspects.

    Police have not said if there was a motive that led to the gunfire.
