Officers captured 19-year-old Michael K Higgins early this morning in the 1600 block of South Willis and charged him with felony assault.
The shooting incident happened Thursday night in the 800 block of Sammons Street when police say 19-year-old Lloyd Shelton III suffered a gunshot wound in the back. Shelton is hospitalized in serious condition, but police say he is expected to survive.
The investigation is ongoing, but police say it looks like the shooting happened during a fight over illegal drugs.
Higgins' bond has been set at $125,000.
