High School Basketball Shooting Results In Arrest Of SC Teen

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Sheriff's deputies have arrested a 16-year-old in connection with a shooting after a South Carolina high school basketball game.

Spartanburg County sheriff's spokesman Tony Ivey said Randall Dewon Armstrong of Cowpens was arrested Friday night and will be charged as an adult.

Ivey said Saturday that Armstrong refused to answer police questions and denied any involvement in the shooting. He was being held at the state Juvenile Justice Department awaiting a bail hearing. Ivey said Armstrong did not yet have an attorney.

According to a police report, one man at the scene said his leg was grazed by a bullet, but he did not want to press charges. Witnesses told deputies shots were fired from the parking lot near the gym and several suspects left in a dark sedan.
