HOT SPRINGS -- Two teens have been charged in shootings that left two people injured outside a residence on Rector Street.
Fredrick Eugene Scott Jr., 15, of Hot Springs was charged as an adult with two felony counts of first-degree battery and one felony count of committing a terroristic act after he told police he had a firearm and shot into a vehicle in an attempt to injure one of the women inside, according to an arrest report released Monday.
Scott faces up to life in prison on the terrorist act charge. He is scheduled to appear Aug. 8 in Garland County District Court.
Julius Lamar Rutledge, 18, of Hot Springs, was charged Friday with two felony counts of first-degree battery and one felony count of committing a terroristic act. He also faces up to life in prison and was initially being held without bail.
Rutledge appeared via video before Judge Ralph Ohm in district court Monday morning and pleaded innocent to the charges. He is scheduled to appear Sept. 24 for a hearing to determine if the case will be bound over to Garland County Circuit Court.
According to the probable-cause affidavit attached to Scott's arrest report, officers responded to a shooting in the 200 block of Rector Street about 9 p.m. on July 26 and found a woman, identified as 21-year-old Cheyenne Perry, slumped over in the driver's seat of a blue Nissan Versa. She reportedly had a gunshot wound in her right side.
A girl, identified as Elisana Murphy, was lying on the ground near the driver's side at the rear of the car with gunshot wounds in her chest and wrist, the affidavit said.
