Several arrests have been made in connection to a shooting Thursday afternoon in north Lincoln.

Police swarmed the Garden Apartments parking lot on Portia Street, just northeast of 14th and Adams.  There, they found a 17-year-old girl who was shot in the leg and bleeding.

"Those involved know one another and we believe that this is a culmination of an argument that's actually been brewing for several weeks," Officer Katie Flood said.

Police say three teenage male suspects face felony charges. 

Two of the suspects, including the shooter are 16.  He's being held on a 1st Degree Assault charge.  The other 16-year-old, for Aiding and Abetting.  The third suspect is 18–year–old Abreion Alexander.  He was arrested after police say he punched an officer in the face.  He'll be charged with 3rd Degree Assault.

It all started when the 17–year–old victim and two friends were outside the apartments.

Police say two cars pulled up, several teenaged boys got out and at least one started firing.

"The other two victims, both 20 escaped injury," Officer Flood said.

Witnesses say the suspects took off in their cars immediately after the shooting.

"Lincoln, you know, it's supposed to be less violent and everything but now, man, it makes me a little nervous for my kids to be outside playing in this kind of stuff," Edward Williams said.

Police say they found all three teens at Alexander's mother's house.  She, 42–year–old Erica Ivory, was arrested for Obstructing an Officer and Resisting Arrest.

"We're still investigating the case and additional citations are possible pending further investigation."

The victim is still in the hospital recovering from a gunshot wound to the knee but is expected to be okay.

Police were able to recover the gun and they continue to investigate.

On Thursday, multiple shots were fired around 2 p.m. in the Garden Apartments parking lot on Portia Street in north Lincoln.

When police got there, they found a 17-year-old girl with a bullet in her leg.

"She suffered a minor gunshot wound," Capt. Jim Davidsaver, Lincoln Police Department, said.

One man said he heard the shots and was confused. He moved to Lincoln from Omaha to get away from violence. Now he's a witness of it.

"Lincoln, you know, it's supposed to be less violent," Edward Williams, Lincoln, said. "It makes me a little nervous for my kids to be outside playing in this kind of stuff."
