Morrow police said officers have arrested a 19-year-old man in connection to a shooting at Southlake Mall on Thursday afternoon.

Cody Wilson was charged with a weapons violation, the Morrow Police Department said Friday. 

Seven people were detained on Thursday afternoon immediately following the shooting just outside the mall that injured a 28-year-old man. That man was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital but is expected to survive. He was listed in stable condition as of Friday afternoon. His name is not being released because police said he may have been involved in the shooting.
