According to Bethany police, Leslie Ford, 17, have been arrested and will be charged with two counts of shooting with intent to kill, and one count of first-degree robbery.

Officers responded to the incident just before 11:30 p.m. Friday, at a duplex on 31st Street and North Peniel. Police say Ford and another teenager forced themselves inside the home, and attempted to rob the victims inside.

According to police, two men at the home fought back, that's when Ford and the other suspect fired shots at them.

The two victims were taken to the hospital and are in good condition.

Police say they are still looking for the second teenage suspect. He will be charged with the same crime as Ford.
