CHICAGO (AP) - A suspect has been arrested in the April shooting death of a 15-year-old boy about four blocks from President Barack Obama's Chicago home.
The Police Department's News Affairs office says 20-year-old Kevin Culverson of Chicago has been charged with first-degree murder.
He's accused of firing a handgun into a crowd on April 22.
The victim, Cornelius German, was struck in the back and pronounced dead at the scene.
His mother told the Chicago Sun-Times at the time that friends of the boy said he was leaving a dice game when he was shot.
Police said German was a gang member, but his family denies that.
Culverson was to appear in bond court Wednesday.
It was not immediately clear if he already had a lawyer.
