 A 15-year-old Kansas boy who was injured in a confrontation with law enforcement officers last month has been arrested in Salina.
    
Kansas Bureau of Investigation agents served an arrest warrant Thursday at Saint Francis Community Services in Salina, where the teenager has been held since he was released from a hospital in Kearney, Nebraska.
    
The warrant includes charges of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated kidnapping, and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.  He was taken to the Sedgwick County juvenile detention center.  The KBI said in a news release that additional charges are possible.
    
The boy was shot and wounded Dec. 15 after he allegedly attacked a 66-year-old woman in Smith County and fled on horseback.
    
Authorities say he was shot when he fired at Kansas Highway Patrol troopers.
    
No officers were hurt.
