DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A 17-year-old Des Moines man has been arrested as a suspect in Friday’s fatal shooting.

Des Moines Police say the teen was arrested late Saturday on suspicion of first-degree murder.

The 17-year-old will be charged in the shooting death of 28-year-old Jose Lopez. Officers found Lopez dead on a street north of downtown Des Moines around 10:30 p.m. Friday.

The Associated Press generally doesn’t name juveniles accused of crimes, and in this case the teen suspect hasn’t appeared in court yet.
