Danbury Police have recovered the handgun believed to be used in the shooting at Danbury Mall a week ago.  Spokesman Lt Mark Williams says it was found by investigators on mall property, but away from the scene. 

A 14-year old was charged with assault, reckless endangerment, unlawful discharge of a firearm, carrying a pistol without a permit, risk of injury to a minor and breach of peace. 

It has not yet been determined how or where he got the gun. 

Through the course of the investigation, police got in touch with the family, and the juvenile agreed to turn himself in on Monday, which he did.  He was accompanied by his parents and attorney, and later transported to the Bridgeport Juvenile Detention Center.  Related court documents have been sealed. 

A 15-year old girl was shot in the upper chest Wednesday night, and her injuries are considered non-life threatening.  The mall was placed on lockdown during the investigation, which is continuing.  Because the victim and the assailant are under 16 years old, police say their names will not be released.
