James Turner, 40, was arrested on Sunday in connection to the same case. He is now facing charges of aggravated burglary and felonious assault.

Our partners at the Piqua Daily Call report that police were called to 628 Second Street just after 9:30 p.m. Saturday on reports of a person threatening to shoot someone.

When officers arrived, they found a teen victim shot in the hand.

The victim was taken to hospital for treatment. Police said the victim’s injury doesn’t appear to be life-threatening.

A .38 caliber revolver was recovered at the scene.

Police said they had a hard time gathering information because the people in the home were hysterical.
