CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

A Chattanooga teenager is facing some serious charges, as an adult, in connection to a shooting that happened last year. 

Channel 3 originally reported the shooting last November, but no one had been charged in the crime until Thursday. 

It was just before Thanksgiving when police found Deonte James, 21, was shot in the chest in the parking lot of Family Dollar on Wilcox Boulevard. 

Court documents show James showed up to sell a girl under the age of 18 drugs moments before the shooting happened. 

That's when a group of teens surrounded the car James was in, took his pot and shot him before taking off. 

Despite being shot in the chest, police said the gunshot wound wasn't life threatening. 

Documents show Nicholas Pillows, 17, pulled the trigger. 

A Hamilton County grand jury indicted Pillows on some serious charges in connection to crime including attempted first-degree murder, especially aggravated robbery and aggravated assault-- All considered felonies. 

He will answer to a Hamilton County judge in adult court next month.
