TUCSON, AZ - A teenager is jailed on a $1 million bail in connection with the fatal shooting of a Tucson man last weekend.
Pima County Sheriff's officials say the 17-year-old boy was arrested Tuesday at Tucson's Pueblo Magnet High School, where he is a student.
They say the teen has been booked into the county jail on suspicion of first-degree murder in the shooting death of 19-year-old Jesus Duarte.
The boy turns 18 Friday.
Authorities say he's suspected of luring Duarte out of his home just before midnight Sunday and allegedly shooting the victim multiple times as he pleaded for his life.
The Arizona Daily Star says detectives learned Duarte allegedly was in an intimate relationship with the suspect's girlfriend.
Authorities didn't know Wednesday if the teen had a lawyer yet.
