EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - An Evansville teen is being charged as an adult in connection with a shooting on Monday that sent four other teens to the hospital.

Court records show 16-year-old Jarnell Carter is being held on a $1-million cash bond.

The shooting happened around 10:30 p.m. Monday on South Bedford Avenue, near East Cherry Street.

According to an arrest affidavit, the shooting stemmed from an ongoing gang feud. Witnesses on the scene of the shooting say the feud was over a murder case from last year.

When the two groups met up Monday night, several witnesses identified Carter in lineups as the person who pulled out a gun and started shooting at the crowd.

The four people that were shot were either hit in their back, legs, or hand. No one was seriously hurt, according to police.
