A 17-year-old is arrested in the shooting of two people at the Dover Elks Lodge early Sunday.

Police say it happened just after midnight July 6th. Police say 17-year-old James Ewell went into the building on North Kirkwood Street without security or lodge staff noticing. Shortly after entering, police say Ewell fired three shots, hitting a 44-year-old man twice in the upper leg and a 25-year-old man in the lower leg.

Both victims were treated for non-life threatening injuries. Witnesses in the lodge at the time of the shooting described Ewell, and police identified him through the lodge's surveillance footage, even seeing a 9mm handgun in his hand as he ran out after the shooting.

Ewell was arrested on Tuesday evening at the William Marion Stevenson House Detention Center. He was being held there on unrelated charges after the shooting occurred.
