RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A Racine man has been arrested for allegedly shooting and robbing a man during a drug deal.

Donterrios Bell, 19, is facing charges of armed robbery, first degree reckless injury, possession of a firearm by adjudicated delinquent, and felony bail jumping.

Officers were called to the area of 16th Street and Murray Avenue on March 10 for a report of a shooting.

When officers arrived on scene, they located a male victim bleeding from his neck. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

According to the criminal complaint, the victim told police that he had met the suspect in the parking lot of Taylor Mart to purchase marijuana.
