LEE'S SUMMIT, MO (KCTV) -- A teenager has been arrested after a 14-year-old was shot in the leg.

The shooting happened last Friday evening outside of the Landmark Skate Center located at 701 SE Oldham Ct. Following an investigation, it was determined a fight broke out in the parking lot prior to the shooting. 

A 16-year-old boy from Kansas City was taken into custody Friday and is awaiting charges. Because the suspect is a juvenile, the police department is not allowed to release his name. The teen remains in the custody of juvenile authorities. 

The victim is expected to survive.
