SIOUX CITY | A Sioux City teen has been arrested on a felony charge, after police said he shot another teen.

Court documents filed Friday said Elija Perales, 17, was arrested on a charge of willful injury causing serious injury. The documents said Perales went to a home in the 2100 block of South Lemon Street to confront another 17-year-old male about a previous altercation.

A Sioux City police officer said that during the Thursday confrontation, Perales pointed a gun at the head of the other teen but did not fire. Police said he then shot the person in the knee.

The documents did not contain specifics about the severity of the injury to the shooting victim. Perales was booked into Woodbury County Jail.
