FORREST CITY, Ark. (AP) - Police in Forrest City say a suspect has been taken into custody and charged in a shooting that killed a 12-year-old and wounded a 16-year-old.

Detective Jeff Nichols says 28-year-old Ricardo McDaniel was arrested in West Helena near the Mississippi border and charged Saturday with first-degree murder, first-degree battery and residential burglary.

Authorities found the victims in their home early Saturday morning. Their names were not released.

Nichols said the 16-year-old was in critical condition Saturday night.

Nichols says McDaniel, who was the boyfriend of the victims’ mother, was in custody Saturday night at the Forrest City jail. It was not immediately clear whether McDaniel had an attorney.
