BEAVER DAM, Wis. (AP) - Authorities have arrested two teenagers in connection with a shooting at the Fleet Farm store in Beaver Dam.

Police say an assistant manager at the store was shot in the parking lot Wednesday evening as he helped another employee detain a 17-year-old suspected of shoplifting some ammunition. The teen is accused of pulling out a handgun and shooting the 31-year-old assistant manager in the shoulder area and the wrist. The gunshots are not believed to be life threatening. The other employee, an off-duty law enforcement officer, witnessed the shooting.

Officials say the suspect from Fitchburg drove off at a high rate of speed on Highway 151 and was arrested a short time later. WKOW-TV (http://bit.ly/1J1o5hK ) says an 18-year-old man from Verona, believed to be an accomplice, was also arrested.
