LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have arrested a juvenile in connection with a deadly triple shooting during a kickball game in the city's west end last summer.

Because he is a juvenile, the suspect's name is not being released.

Twenty-two-year-old Antonio Anderson was killed in the shooting at Shawnee Park on Aug. 14, 2011, and two other people were seriously wounded.

Police have already made three arrests in connection with the shooting -- 24-year-old Quentin L. Wilson, 22-year-old William B. Smith III, and 18-year-old Tyron L. Mack.

The juvenile -- a 17-year-old male -- was arrested around 6:30 p.m. on March 9, 2012, at his residence on south 43rd Street. Wilson and Smith were arrested a few hours after the shooting. Mack was taken into custody in late December.

Detectives say Mack also implicated himself in the November 13th murder of Stephon Bowman, who was found shot to death outside a car parked at 11th and Muhammad Ali.

According to the juvenile's arrest report, witnesses saw him firing a handgun "into a large crowd of people."

One of the witnesses at the park was an on-duty LMPD officer who was on routine patrol and witnessed the shooting.

More than 100 people were at the kickball game, and police say many came forward as witnesses. 

The juvenile is charged with murder, attempted murder, and wanton endangerment.
