Two people are in jail and charged with a shooting that left a teen in critical condition Thursday night.

According to a news release, Ulysses McMillan and LaKyle Harris, both 19-years-old, were arrested Friday and charged with aggravated assault and attempted armed robbery.

The GBI’s Eastman office was requested around 11 p.m. Thursday to assist Lumber City Police with a shooting investigation.

After getting to the scene on Morse Street, the investigation revealed an attempted armed robbery at the home.
