    A 17-year-old suspect was arrested in connection to the shooting of another teenager.

    A 17-year-old boy and his step-father were arrested Wednesday in connection with the shooting of another teenager in San Francisco's Fillmore District at the intersection of Filmore and Eddy Streets on July 21, police said.

    The 14-year-old victim was shot in the face, although his injuries were not considered life-threatening, police said.

    The 17-year-old suspect was identified by witnesses and officers from the city's Northern Police Station, and he and his step-father, Marcus Leslie, 39, were booked into Juvenile Justice Center and San Francisco County Jail respectively, according to police.

    A search of the premises revealed ammunition and a .380 caliber handgun in the suspect's room-- which matches the description of the handgun used by the suspect in the shooting-- as well as a stolen .45 caliber gun and marijuana that were found in Leslie's room, police said. 

    The teenage suspect was booked on charges of attempted homicide and assault with a deadly weapon. Leslie was booked for being a convicted felon in possession of a weapon and ammunition, according to police.
