Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with a shooting at the Calhoun Walmart earlier this month. 

The Calhoun Times reports that a 15-year-old was shot in the leg on Feb. 11 during an interaction with individuals thought to be from out of town. The shooter left the scene before the police arrived.

Struck in a femoral artery, the injured teen was transported to Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga where he underwent surgery. He is expected to make a full recovery.

On Monday, Calhoun Police Chief Tony Pyle reported two 16-year-old males had been taken into custody and turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice.
