ZACHARY, LA (WAFB) -

A grand jury didn't think there was enough evidence to move forward in a case against a man accused of a shooting that injured two people. But he's not a free man just yet. 

Jarred Young, 18, is accused of shooting at a vehicle on Friday, June 11. Two men were admitted to a local hospital and a third person inside the vehicle was unharmed. 

One of the men received a gunshot wound to the right hip. A second man was shot in the face. 

The third man in the vehicle managed to drive the two injured men to the hospital.

According to investigators, the shooting happened in the 5400 block of Highway 19. 

The case was presented to a grand jury on Wednesday, August 10. The grand jury pretermitted the case, which means that the prosecution cannot move forward unless it is brought back to a grand jury with new evidence. 

Along with the attempted murder charges, Young was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison for illegal use of a weapon and possession of schedule I drugs. Although he is released from his bond obligation for the attempted murder charge and illegal use of a weapon, he will still face charges for possession of schedule I drugs. 

A grand jury indictment is required for violent offenses such as attempted murder, but is not required for lesser offenses such as drug charges. In the lesser cases, the District Attorney can review the charges and if he/she feels there is sufficient evidence to move forward, a bill of information will be filed.
