Sulphur Springs Police Department has arrested a 17 year old Sulphur Springs man in connection with the shooting at the Buford Park skate park on Sunday.
SSPD arrested Justin Quentil Richards earlier today in connection with the shooting. A mugshot of Richards is not currently available.
The dispute that led to the shooting was between Richards and a person other than the victim, according to Chief Ricketson.
The victim suffered a single gunshot wound and was transported to the hospital in a private vehicle by his friends. The victim is currently in good condition and has been released from the hospital.
The suspect vehicles in the shooting fled the scene of the crime. SSPD immediately began working to identify the vehicles and locate the shooter.
Richards is held at Hopkins County Jail on one charge of Aggravated Assault Causing Serious Bodily Injury. Bond has not been set at this time.
