JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) — Janesville police say a 17-year-old boy has been arrested after shooting two people with arrows from a compound bow.

Officers were dispatched to Mercy Hospital in Janesville shortly before 9 p.m. Sunday on a report of two people shot with arrows from the bow. The two told police they were shot during a disturbance.

There was no word on their conditions. Police say the suspect fled the scene and returned to a residence where police established a perimeter and began communicating with him. The teen eventually surrendered.
