Fourteen-year-old Timothy K. White now faces a criminal homicide charge for the shooting death of 15-year-old Steven Brown Jr. on August 22.
Police arrested White, of Atwell Drive, Tuesday night after an investigation led them to believe White and Brown had been involved in a prior disagreement.
White allegedly shot Brown, of Ames Drive, in the hip after the two boys encountered each other along Rowan Drive.
Police do not believe the shooting to be gang related. White is in custody at Metro’s Juvenile Justice Center and is scheduled to appear in juvenile court for a detention hearing later this week.
