CALLAWAY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A teenager is facing multiple charges after a shooting in Callaway Tuesday.

Bay County deputies tell us that at 5 p.m. Harry McNeil, 15, rode up on his bike to two people working on a job site off of North Kimbrel Avenue when he demanded they give him money. Deputies say the workers thought McNeil was joking. They say he then drew a gun and fired two shots, hitting each person once.

Both victims were sent to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators spoke to multiple witnesses, leading deputies to the suspect's address on South Gay Avenue. When it was discovered the McNeil had already ran away, deputies deployed a K-9 and authorities were then able to find him several blocks from his home.

McNeil has been charged with attempted armed robbery, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and delinquent in possession of a firearm.
