WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- A teen was arrested Friday and charged after three teens were shot and injured, according to Winston-Salem police.

Eduardo Ozuna, 18, of Winston-Salem, was charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to inflict serious injury.

He received a $75,000 secured bond.

His preliminary hearing date is set for Sept. 12.

Police say three teens were shot in Winston-Salem on Thursday night.

A 19-year-old man was hit by bullets. Family friends of his confirm with FOX8 that his brother was also shot. They are both said to be doing OK.

The age and condition of the third victim is unknown.

The shooting was reported at 7:03 p.m. at 4630 S. Main St.

Witnesses to the shooting described seeing a car drive past a crowd of about 50 people that were standing along the neighborhood roads.

They said most appeared to be between the ages of 15 and 20.

“Certainly it's disheartening when it’s minors, but at the same time this is a community where it appears that people live in close proximity to each other, so I would like to think that somebody saw something, and if they did we would hope that they would say something,” said Lt. Eric Montgomery.

Officers are still trying to determine what led up to the shooting.

Police said Thursday they believe the suspects left the area in a vehicle immediately after the shooting.

They would not say how many people they are looking for.
