MINNEAPOLIS — A 12-year-old boy suspected in a fatal shooting in Omaha has been arrested in Minneapolis.

According to an Omaha police statement released Tuesday, the boy was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals Service and will be booked ahead of court proceedings to return him to Nebraska.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that the boy is one of three suspects in the June 29 shooting of 31-year-old Jamymell Ray near Miller Park. Two other suspects, aged 15 and 17, were arrested last week.

A 30-year-old man was also wounded in the shooting.

A Douglas County prosecutor says the young men had planned to rob the men whom they lured to the area on the premise of a marijuana deal.

The Associated Press generally does not name juveniles accused of crimes.
