The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office announced they have arrested a 17-year-old boy for a shooting on Jamaica Street in Port Charlotte.

Deputies responded to the shooting Thursday night that left a woman hurt.

When deputies entered the home, they found the victim with a gunshot wound that was later deemed not life-threatening.

Deputies said the parties involved were uncooperative with the deputies’ investigation.

The teen arrested is being charged with aggravated battery with a firearm, resisting without violence and violation of probation.

Deputies called this a family-related dispute.
