One person is now charged with shooting a Lebanon teen.
Deputies are searching for Rodney Welch, Jr., 19, a former resident of Lebanon. He's been charged with assault with serious injuries and armed criminal action.
The shooting happened yesterday at the home of Noah Houston, 19. Laclede County Sheriff David Millsap says Welch allegedly shot Houston once in the mid section with a handgun. He's currently listed in stable condition at a Springfield hospital.
Although Millsap is hesitant to release a motive this early in the investigation, he did indicate drugs may have played a part.
"Robberies like this tend to have a nexus regarding drug activity. When you're investigating these particular types of robberies, we always look at that as a possible motive."
The victim is currently serving supervised probation for a weapons and drug offense while the alleged shooter is on probation for burglary.
