Denyke Glenn was arrested at about 10 p.m. Wednesday and booked into the Bibb County jail on charges of aggravated assault and criminal street gang activity.

When officers arrived at the gym just after 8 p.m. Monday, a 16-year-old who had been playing basketball had been shot in the back of the leg.
