ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a teenager is in custody in connection with the shooting death of a 17-year-old boy near Albuquerque.

Red River Marshal David Smith says the name of the 15-year-old suspect isn’t being released.

Smith says the boy is being held in the Juvenile Detention Center on suspicion of second-degree murder.

The marshal tells KOB-TV that Daniel Caleb Williams was in a home with two other people when the suspected shooter became agitated, grabbed a shotgun from the table and shot Williams.

The suspect was found 45 minutes later hiding in a parking lot.

Police say the teen discarded the shotgun before being arrested, but it has since been located.
