Allegheny County officials have announced the arrest of a 15-year-old who is facing charges as an adult.

Darryl Pirl is being charged with two counts of aggravated assault, firearms not to be carried without a license, possession of a firearm by a minor and recklessly endangering another person, WPXI reported.

Pirl was injured in the shooting when he was grazed by a bullet on Sept. 24 and was taken to a hospital by private means, the criminal complaint said, according to WPXI.

Three people including Pirl were injured in the shooting at Kennywood amusement park.

Police said a second firearm was used and they are currently looking for a second person who is most likely a juvenile, WPXI reported.

Police believe the shooting was related to a months-long feud between two groups of teens. Since July 1, police have had 55 calls for shots fired in the area that is called the Mon Valley, in which Kennywood is located.
