A 14-year-old, who remained unidentified because of his age, was arrested on Thursday, while  at school.

He’s accused of shooting a 16-year-old student in the stomach just a block from Santa Ana High School, on April 27.

The boy was booked on suspicion of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon.

Investigators are continuing to build their case against the 14-year-old documented gang member who allegedly shot a fellow student at Santa Ana High School.

The victim was walking away from school with a friend when the shooter ran in front of them and then turned and opened fire, police said last week. The boy who was shot tried to run back to school but collapsed in an alley, Bertagna said.

The pair had an ongoing rivalry due to gang affiliations, the police department said in a press release Friday afternoon.

Investigators had a search warrant for the suspect’s home to try to find the handgun used in the crime, but Bertagna couldn’t say Saturday whether the weapon had been found.

The shooting victim remained in the hospital last Friday in grave condition, Bertagna said.

The alleged shooter had been booked at Orange County Juvenile Hall.
