A 16-year-old Reservoir Hill boy has been arrested and charged in the drive-by shooting outside the Walbrook Junction Shopping Center last Wednesday in which two young bystanders were wounded.

Ronald Edward Paul was arrested at his home in the 2100 block of Callow Ave. yesterday and charged as an adult with attempted murder, using a handgun in the commission of a felony and possession of a handgun. He was held at the Southwestern District lockup pending a bail hearing today.

Police are still seeking at least two other males who sped off in a pickup truck after Tia Lipscomb, 10, of North Bentalou Street, and Aaron Davis, 17, of the 700 block of N. Mount St., were shot.

Tia, a student at the Mildred Monroe Elementary School at Guilford Avenue and East Federal Street, was shot in the back while walking along Garrison Boulevard near Clifton Avenue with her grandmother. She underwent surgery at Sinai Hospital and was released a few days later, a bullet still lodged near her spine.

Young Davis was shot in the leg as he walked toward a restaurant. He also was treated at Sinai and released the same day.
