A 17-year-old male has been arrested in connection with the shooting of a 13-year-old Chattanooga girl.

The teen, whose name has not been released because he is a juvenile, was arrested Monday night and charged with attempted first-degree murder, felony reckless endangerment, aggravated assault, and unlawful possession of a firearm, according to a statement from police spokesman Officer Nathan Hartwig.

Keoshia Ford remained in critical condition at Erlanger hospital Monday night after police say she was caught in the crossfire of a shootout that spanned several blocks in Highland Park as people in several vehicles exchanged gunfire with people on the street.
