ARLINGTON, Texas (WJW) -- A 16-year-old boy was shot and killed days after he broke up a fight involving the shooting suspect, authorities say.
The teenager was shot in Arlington on Thursday, the Arlington Police Department said in a statement. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Samuel Reynolds was shot at the apartment complex where he lived, KTVT reported.
Officers arrested a male juvenile suspect the same day, who was not identified because of his age.
“Our victim had broken up a fight a few days prior with a smaller -- what he described as a smaller -- boy that was kind being picked on and after he broke up the fight he started having some trouble with the suspect,” Arlington Police Officer Christopher Cook said.
One of the youths involved was the shooting suspect, who was captured on security cameras shooting Reynolds with a .40 caliber gun, KTVT said, citing police.
