PAHOKEE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say they've arrested the teen who fatally shot Pahokee football player Norman Griffith Jr.
An 18-year-old linebacker and tight end, Griffith was shot in the head as he drove away from a post-game dance in Belle Glade early Saturday.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says that the fatal shot was fired by 16-year-old Willie Felton. Felton was arrested Friday and charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery.
Authorities say 17-year-old Carl Lee Booth Jr. was arrested Thursday for participating in the shooting. Even though none of his shots hit Griffith, he has still been charged with first-degree murder.
The sheriff's office reports that both teens remain in jail.
