NEW HAVEN, CT (WFSB) -

A New Haven teenager was arrested after a shooting outside a high school basketball game.

According to police, the crowd was clearing after a game at the Wilbur Cross High School at 7:48 p.m. when people reported hearing a shot fired in a nearby parking lot. 

A 17-year-old boy with his father were located in the parking lot, who police believe was the intended target.

The boy told police that a group of three approached the teenager, who he has an ongoing feud with one of them.

That is when police said 18-year-old Trea Fraser shot at the teenager. However, he missed.

Fraser was arrested at his home early Tuesday morning. He was charged with first-degree criminal attempt to commit assault, unlawful discharge of a firearm, first-degree reckless endangerment, and carrying a pistol without a permit.

Police said it is unclear if Fraser ever went into the school, however everyone, who attended the basketball game had to pass through a mental detector.
