TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - The teenager who allegedly fired shots at a student and an Arizona State University police officer on Dec. 1 has been indicted by a grand jury.

Reid Ralph Chee, age 17, faces 11 various charges of aggravated assault, endangerment, disorderly conduct, unlawful discharge of a firearm, minor with a firearm, threatening or intimidating, false reporting to law enforcement, and unlawful liquor. County Attorney Rachel Mitchell said about the incident, “Using a gun to intimidate or harm anyone in this community is a serious charge and those who are accused of doing so will be held accountable.”

No one was injured, and investigators quickly found and arrested the 17-year-old. A shelter-in-place order was issued for around 4 hours due to the shooting.
