GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - A man accused of shooting at a car at a Green Bay gas station has been taken into custody.

Green Bay Police say Stephon Young was arrested in Chicago Friday. Police say Young was arrested near a courthouse. He had showed up for a hearing in a separate case.

“The Green Bay Police Department is working with law enforcement authorities in Chicago to begin the extradition process back to Green Bay,” officers say.

The 25-year-old had a warrant for his arrest for a shooting at the BP on S. Military Ave. Tuesday night.

Police believe Young fired a handgun at people inside a car at the gas station. One person was seriously injured. Two people were taken into custody. Investigators said one shot was fired and called it a targeted shooting involving parties who knew each other. Young faces a charge of 1st Degree Reckless Injury.

The weapon used in Tuesday’s shooting wasn’t recovered.

Police said Young has ties to Appleton and Chicago areas.

“This investigation is a result of the great work of many officers and detectives of the department. Also, we want to thank the community for their patience while we investigate this incident as we understand the effect this has on the community,” police say.
