Police have made a new arrest in Monday's shooting of a 10-year-old boy in Newark.

Authorities initially brought Lawrence Cook, 29, in for questioning as the shooter. They now believe Terrell Jones, 23, may have been the man behind the trigger.

Jones is facing multiple charges. The weapon has not yet been found.

The boy was left in critical condition after the shooting. He is now recovering at University Hospital.
