The Henderson Police Department says two teen boys have been arrested in connection to a shooting that happened two weeks ago in Henderson, Kentucky.

The two 15-year-olds were arrested on Thursday in connection to a shooting that happened two weeks ago, according to police.

HPD says the incident happened on July 29 on Helm Street, where a home was shot into numerous times. 

On that day, a woman living in the home said she heard several gunshots, only to discover that some of her belongings inside the home had been hit by the gunfire.

The police department says it now knows the shooting was the result of a fight between one of the teenage boys and another person. They say that fight escalated into a shooting, but that the teen shot into the wrong house.

HPD says the gun used in the crime has been recovered, and that the two teen boys were arrested and charged with Wanton Endangerment 1st Degree. 

Anyone who may have additional information on the shooting should call HPD at 270-831-1295.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
