TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A 13-year-old boy was charged with shooting another teenager in Tampa last week.

According to a release from the Tampa Police Department, officers were called to E. Seneca Ave. and E. Jasmine Ave. on Sept. 7 for a reported shooting.

The victim, identified as a 15-year-old boy, returned fire and was located a few blocks away. He was rushed to the hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.

Officers arrested the 13-year-old suspect on Sunday near the area where the shooting happened. He was allegedly carrying a loaded handgun at the time of his arrest, which police said was reported stolen from an unlocked car.

The teenager was charged with two counts of minor in possession of a weapon, two counts of carrying a concealed firearm, discharge of a firearm in public, and aggravated battery with great bodily harm or deadly weapon.

“We take any instance of gun violence involving youth very seriously,” Chief Lee Bercaw said. “As a community, we need to work harder together to make sure that guns are not easily accessible to those who should not have them. We urge the community to provide tips, regarding any incident, that will help improve gun safety and keep guns out of the hands of our kids.”

Tampa police are still investigating the incident.
