SALISBURY, Md.- Police have arrested a teen in connection with a Monday night shooting that left two juveniles wounded in Salisbury. 

Shaquan Malik Wallace, 17, of Salisbury, is being charged as an adult with reckless endangerment, minor in possession of firearm and wear/carry/transport handgun in vehicle.

Salisbury police said Wallace's arrest stemmed from an incident that occurred Monday night. According to police, at around 9 p.m. officers responded to Peninsula Regional Medical Center to investigate a reported assault. Hospital representatives told the officers that two victims were being treated for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. 

Police said the investigation into the incident revealed that the two juvenile victims were seated in a vehicle which was in the parking lot of Thirsty's convenience store located at 444 Snow Hill Road. According to police, while at this location a third occupant in the vehicle removed a handgun from his waistband. Investigators said that as this third occupant was handling the firearm, a round was discharged and it struck one victim in the thigh and a second victim in the arm. The victims were driven to PRMC where they were treated and released to the custody of their guardian.  During the course of the investigation, police said detectives identified Wallace as responsible for the shooting and an arrest warrant was issued.

Shortly after 4 a.m. Tuesday, members of the Maryland State Apprehension Team located and arrested Wallace at his home on 500 block of Priscilla St. After being charged with the aforementioned offenses, he was turned over to the custody of Wicomico Central Booking.

The firearm has still not been located and the investigation is ongoing, police said.
