A 17-year-old from DeLand was arrested Friday night in the shooting of a relative outside his home.

Deputies responded to the shooting on East Haven Road around 9:15 p.m. Friday and found the male victim, 26, lying in the driveway with a gunshot wound. He was airlifted to a hospital for treatment of critical injuries and is expected to survive.

The suspected shooter, Jacob Real (DOB 8/19/2004) was still on scene, and deputies took him into custody without incident.

Detectives determined the shooting stemmed from an argument between the shooter and victim after they came home from work together. The argument started outside, moved inside with some shoving involved, and then moved back outside, where Real shot the victim.

Real was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a minor and transported to the Department of Juvenile Justice.
