Drugs were found at the scene of a Waconda Bay shooting, police said.

Fred "Trey" Cagle was shot in the abdomen, and Justin Charles Baker was later arrested on a charge of aggravated assault.

Police said Cagle picked Baker out of a lineup as the man who shot him at close range with a .40 caliber pistol last Thursday.

Neighbors heard three gunshots and Cagle was seen running from inside the garage at 9042 Waconda Bay Dr. He went out the back door and into some woods.

Cagle was transported to the hospital. The only description he initially gave of the shooter was a black male.

Cagle's vehicle, a silver Dodge Neon with Nebraska plates, was taken to the police impoundment.

At the scene, police found two spent shell casings, a live round of .40 caliber ammunition, and a small plastic bag of white powdery substance.

Some blood was at the scene.

Cagle said Baker is a member of the Bloods gang.

Police said Baker is a convicted felon who was prohibited from possessing a gun.
