MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police say three teenagers, one of whom is a juvenile, have been arrested in a shooting that took place Monday afternoon near a northeast Memphis school campus.

Steven Austin, 18, and an unnamed 17-year-old were arrested and charged with attempted 2nd-degree murder, police said. Erik Sandoval, 19, had already been arrested and charged in the case.

A witness told police that Sandoval and another teen were selling drugs out of a car parked on North Graham. An argument broke out among the group and escalated to gunfire.

Two of the victims were taken by ambulance to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital — one in critical condition. The third teen drove to a nearby convenience store with his car window shattered by bullets. He was taken to Regional Medical Center in critical condition. 

The adult was later driven to Baptist East in non-critical condition.
