MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Deputies arrested a man Wednesday who was wanted for allegedly shooting a 15-year-old earlier this week in southeast Shelby County.

The sheriff’s office says 23-year-old Aerian Hunter was arrested after barricading himself inside Waterford Place Apartments. He was wanted on a warrant for a Monday night shooting at a home on Bradfield Run.

According to the sheriff’s office, Hunter recently broke up with his girlfriend and fired shots at her home, shooting the teen in both legs.

Deputies tracked him down but the sheriff’s office says Hunter got away after firing at their vehicle.

Records show Hunter is now charged with multiple counts of attempted first-degree murder, evading arrest and using a firearm in commission of a felony.
