TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A 17-year-old is in custody after authorities say he tried to shoot an ex-girlfriend following a parade in Ybor City.

Tampa police responded to the shooting Saturday night at Centro Ybor complex, near where a crowd of several thousand had gathered for the popular Krewe of Sant’ Yago Knight Parade.

Authorities say the suspect shot an unidentified juvenile. The victim is in stable condition at a Tampa hospital. But police said an ex-lover was the intended target. The two were arguing when police said the teen pulled out a handgun and fired at the second victim but missed.

The suspect was arrested at home. Police said the investigation continues and have not yet released the charges against him.

The Associated Press is not identifying him because he is a minor.
