16-year-old Jailed in Gang-linked death of a 14-year-old Alabama Boy

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - Pontiac, Michigan, police say they've arrested a 16-year-old fugitive wanted in the gang-linked killing of a 14-year-old Alabama boy in June.

James C. Willis was using a false name when officers arrested him Wednesday while investigating a report of gunshots.

Willis is charged with an open count of murder in the killing of the Alabama teen, whose name and hometown haven't been released.

Police tell The Oakland Press the shooting happened after members of the Goon Squad crashed a party at a Pontiac church June 14.

Police say Willis fired into a crowd outside the church, killing the boy.

The Detroit News says police in the Detroit suburb blame the
Goon Squad for several unrelated killings, robberies and assaults.
