LACEY, Wash. (AP) - Thurston County sheriff's detectives have arrested two teens in the drive-by shooting that wounded a 15-year-old in Lacey.
The sheriff's office says a 16-year-old believed to be the driver was arrested Friday at a home and an 18-year-old believed to be the shooter was arrested at River Ridge High School in Lacey. They're facing possible assault and drive-by shooting charges.
The Olympian reports ( http://bit.ly/Wrnb1M) the 15-year-old was one of three people walking Thursday afternoon when the car drove by and a passenger fired six to eight shots. The 15-year-old was hit in the right thigh and treated at a hospital.
The sheriff's office says a video of a recent fight helped identify the suspects. The shooting was part of a longstanding dispute between two groups.
