MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A prosecutor says the 14-year-old boy accused of firing a gun at Riverfront Park after a Montgomery Biscuits baseball game will likely be charged as a juvenile.

Azzie Taylor, chief deputy district attorney with the Montgomery County District Attorney’s office, tells the Montgomery Advertiser (https://on.mgmadv.com/1fiL3ok ) the suspect will likely stay in the juvenile court system because of his age and because his criminal record consisted of only misdemeanors.

Police say they arrested the teen Saturday night after responding to reports of gunshots during the postgame fireworks show at Riverwalk Stadium, after a minor league baseball game. There were no reports of injuries.

The boy has been charged in juvenile court with reckless endangerment, firing a pistol in city limits and carrying a pistol without a license.
