BURLINGTON, N.C. (AP) - A man has been arrested in the shooting death of a teen found in a vehicle in North Carolina.

Burlington police said the man faces accessory charges in the death earlier this month.

Eighteen-year-old Amare Rogers of Graham was arrested Monday and charged with accessory after the fact and harboring a fugitive. Police in Graham also charged Rogers with weapons charges.

Police were called to a shooting Nov. 7 and found 17-year-old Travonte Contrell Compton dead from a gunshot wound in the back seat of a ar.

Police are still looking for a 17-year-old teen charged with killing Compton. Investigators say Rogers provided and retrieved the gun after the shooting. Investigators say Rogers also helped the suspect leave Burlington after the shooting.
