A boy has been arrested in the attempted murder of a teenage woman back in July, Long Beach police announced Friday.

The juvenile, a resident of Signal Hill whose name was not released because of his age, was being held without bail, police said.

The attack took place around 11:45 a.m. on July 3 in the 1400 block of Magnolia Avenue, police said.

The 16-year-old victim was setting up for a fundraising event in a parking lot when she became involved in an argument with some people. One of those people, the alleged suspect, later came back and shot the girl, police said.

The suspect was taken into custody during a traffic stop on Wednesday, police said. He was booked on an attempted murder charge. Police also served a search warrant on the suspect’s residence and took into custody AR-15 rifle, a shotgun, a 40 caliber handgun, magazines and ammunition.
