A 17-year-old from Jennings has been charged with four counts of attempted second-degree murder following a disturbance and shooting that took place in the 1000 block of Old Evangeline Highway in Acadia Parish.

According to a news release from Acadia Parish Sheriff Wayne Melancon, the incident happened Wednesday shortly before midnight.
