“We had a reported shooting incident at the corner of Central American Boulevard and [Neal‘s] Pen Road last night where one Steve Ferrell, twenty-one years old, was shot in the leg, the left leg and left ankle. We have since detained Michael Gladden of an Antelope Street Extension area pending charges of use of deadly means of harm, dangerous harm, discharging a firearm and other related charges. He is presently detained due to quick police response. He was apprehended minutes after the incident occurred, a little after eight last night.”



“Any motive?”
