Teenager Charged With Edgewater Shooting On Monday Evening

A teenager has been charged with a felony count of reckless discharge of a firearm that occurred on Monday evening on the busy corner of Hollywood and Sheridan.

According to reports, several males got into an argument in the 1000 block of W. Hollywood. That incident got worse when the suspect pulled out a handgun and started firing several rounds. Authorities said that none of the men knew each other and it is considered an isolated incident. There were no reports of injuries.

The 17-year-old male was arrested yesterday morning in the 1100 block of W. Ardmore after he was positively identified through area surveillance footage. The name of the suspect was not released because he is a juvenile.

He is currently in custody and expected to be in a bail hearing at 2600 S. California today.
