GREEN BAY (NBC26) — Green Bay police arrested a 15-year-old boy in connection with a shooting on the City’s east side, and a firearm believed to be used in the incident has been recovered.

Police say a 16-year-old boy was shot this afternoon near Mills and Village streets on the city's east side.

Police were called to the scene at about 12:30 p.m. The 16-year-old was rushed to a local hospital.

Investigators say the injuries to the victim are believed to be non-life-threatening.

Police say the initial investigation shows the shooting may have been the result of a previous dispute involving the two juveniles.

Police expect to have extra patrols at Preble High School and in the surrounding area next week.

Preble High and Danz Elementary were under a "secure the building" policy Friday afternoon for around an hour before students were dismissed.

At a 3 p.m. news conference, Police Chief Chris Davis said no arrests had been made — but Green Bay Police announced the arrest of the 15-year-old just after 4:30 p.m.
