WEST PARK, Fla. (AP) — A 17-year-old boy has been arrested in a shooting at a South Florida school bus stop.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office says the West Park boy was attempting to shoot another boy walking toward the bus stop Friday morning.

Authorities say four shots were fired, including one that grazed the neck of 17-year-old Makeda Elliott of Pembroke Park. She was treated at a Miami trauma center and released.

The shooting happened near an elementary school, which had not yet opened. No one else was injured.

According to the sheriff’s office, the 17-year-old boy was taken into custody at Hallandale High School, and he remained in custody late Friday. Authorities say he faces charges of premeditated attempted murder, felony murder and shooting at an occupied dwelling.
