An 18-year-old Florida man is in custody and a 16-year-old is recovering after a shooting incident on Wednesday.
Deputies say Zackary Martin has been charged with aggravated battery and discharging a firearm in public after shooting the juvenile during a physical altercation that took place in an empty lot on Rufus Powers Road in Baker County.
Deputies and detectives responded to the scene, and learned through their investigation, that two groups of individuals ranging in age from 14 to 18 met at the lot to watch Martin fight another 15-year-old due to an ongoing feud involving a girlfriend.

After the victim was shot, Martin fled the scene and traveled to Jacksonville. Eventually, the suspect agreed to turn himself in and was booked into the Baker County Detention Center.
The investigation is ongoing and additional charges for the others involved in the incident are pending.
