A 17-year-old Orange County teen from Newburgh was arrested on Monday, Dec. 6 for the Wednesday, Nov. 17 shooting near the Newburgh Free Academy school.

According to the City of Newburgh Police, the three teens were shot in the area of William Street and Carson Avenue. As officers were responding to the area they were directed to the area of 98 William Street where three gunshot victims were located.
