A shooting Monday night on Cedar Lane in the Toomsuba area left two teenagers injured and one man behind bars.

Jeffrey Creech, 37, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, shooting into an occupied dwelling and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

Both victims were taken to local hospitals. The 19-year-old female was treated and released Monday night. The 13-year-old male remains hospitalized. The injuries, however, are not believed to be life-threatening.

The shooting is under investigation by the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department.

Judge Robbie Robinson set Creech's bond at a total of $85,000 on all four counts.
