A juvenile wanted in connection with a Thursday shooting at Palomar Center was taken into custody Saturday following a six-hour standoff with Lexington police. The 17-year-old male is charged with first-degree robbery and first-degree assault from that incident, police spokeswoman Brenna Angel said.
In the Thursday incident, Tre’von M. Warren, 19, was shot in the leg just after 2 p.m. and was driven in a private vehicle to a hospital. His injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.
Around 1:40 a.m. Saturday, detectives found the teen suspected in the shooting, and he fled into the Whispering Hills Apartments on Camelot Drive. Police talked the juvenile into surrendering shortly after 7 a.m. Saturday.
He was taken to a hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg from a previous incident. Additional weapons and narcotics charges are pending.

Detectives are also working to determine whether the juvenile is connected with a shooting that occurred earlier Friday night. Shortly before 11 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 500 block of Pemberton Street in reference to a report of shots fired. Officers found that two vehicles had been hit by gunfire, and there were blood trails on the sidewalk on both sides of the street. One of the blood trails led officers to a home where they found a 22-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds. Police said his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
