PUEBLO, Colo. (KKTV) - Police continue to investigate the death of a 17-year-old boy and have charged another teen with second-degree murder.
Police are investigating a shooting that killed a 17-year-old boy in Pueblo.
The shooting happened near a parking lot at Runyon Lake in Pueblo on Oct. 25. Police say they learned about the shooting after the victim was brought to a local hospital. That's where he died. The victim was identified as Elijah Naranjo.
According to investigators, some sort of fight broke out between two groups of people around 9:30 p.m. Thursday. That ended in shots being fired.
"We know that there was an altercation between two groups of people," said Pueblo Police Captain Kenny Rider. "I don't know how large the groups were, but from what I understand, the group with whom the victim was with is the group that took him to the hospital."
Police say the teen they have in custody left the scene in another car. Officers caught up with him at a home on the east side of Pueblo a few hours after the shooting.
The suspect is not being identified because of his age. It isn't clear if he will be charged as an adult.
