TUCSON, Ariz. — Police in Tucson say they have arrested a teenager who is considered a suspect in a homicide case.
The Associated Press isn’t identifying the 17-year-old boy because he is a juvenile.
Police say the teen was arrested Saturday on suspicion of first-degree murder and armed robbery.
Officers responded to a report of gunfire and an unresponsive person in a parking lot last Wednesday night.
Police say the man had obvious signs of gunshot trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The victim has been identified as 30-year-old Ron Everett Fitch.
Police say Fitch had agreed to make a sale through a third-party selling site but was robbed when he went to complete the deal and was shot.
Police say forensic evidence led to the teenager’s arrest.
