ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police say they’ve arrested an 18-year-old man on a murder charge in connection with a fatal shooting that led a city fire department dispatcher who hung up on a 911 caller to resign.

Police said in a statement Saturday that Donavan Maez was charged in a criminal complaint with murder and other charges for firing through a bay window into a home filled with young party-goers on June 26. A bullet struck 17-year-old Jaydon Chavez-Silver and he was rushed to a hospital where he died.

The Albuquerque Journal confirmed with her office that Maez is the son of Democratic state Rep. Stephanie Maez of Albuquerque.

A 17-year-old girl called 911 and frantically asked for help after the shooting. The dispatcher sent an ambulance but hung up on the caller moments later.
