NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A 17-year-old boy has been arrested and charged with attempted murder five months after he allegedly shot five people — including a 10-year-old and a 14-year-old — near a Bronx elementary school, the NYPD said. 

Amari Rolle, 17, was arrested and charged with five counts of second-degree attempted murder on Tuesday in connection with the Nov. 27 shooting, police said. 

Police responding to several 911 calls just before 4 p.m. that day found four people, including a 10-year-old boy, a 36-year-old woman, a 19-year-old woman and a 20-year-old man, with gunshot wounds at the intersection of East 151st Street and Courtlandt Avenue. 

The 36-year-old woman's 14-year-old son was also found with a gunshot wound to his buttocks not far from the scene, according to police. 

All of the victims were treated for non-life threatening injuries, the NYPD said. It wasn't immediately clear whether or not Rolle knew the people who were shot. His attorney information wasn't immediately available Wednesday.

Police in November were also searching for two other people in connection with the shooting. It wasn't immediately clear if they were still searching for the two as of Wednesday.
