Damarcus Dunaway, 18, and a 15-year-old male were arrested Thursday and charged with three counts of attempted second-degree murder, three counts of especially aggravated robbery and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
Officers responded to a shooting at Divide Street and Savoy Street around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Three juvenile victims were located at the scene. Two were transported to UT Medical Center with severe injuries and the third suffered minor abrasions, according to a release.
