FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - Frederick police say they’ve arrested a man in the fatal shooting of an ice cream truck driver who was gunned down as he was selling treats to children.

Police say 22-year-old Brandon Brown was fatally shot Saturday afternoon at Lucas Village, a subsidized-housing complex.

Lt. Clark Pennington, a police spokesman, says Brown drove into the community around 5 p.m., playing music to announce the arrival of the truck. Pennington says small children were lined up to buy ice cream when Brown stepped out of the truck and was approached by a man who shot him in the chest. Brown died on the scene.

Pennington says cooperation from witnesses helped police identify 27-year-old Larnell Lyles of Frederick as a suspect. Lyles was arrested early Sunday morning at a home in Walkersville.
