CROWN POINT, Ind. - Authorities say a 17-year-old has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of an 11-year-old northwestern Indiana boy.

Lake County Sheriff Oscar Martinez Jr. says the East Chicago youth was taken into custody Friday morning during a raid at a home. The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports the suspect was being held Friday afternoon at the East Chicago Police Department.

David L. Anderson of East Chicago died Sunday at a Chicago hospital from a gunshot wound to the head. Witnesses told police that two youths were fighting the previous evening at a park when a gunshot rang out and Anderson fell to the ground. Police have said Anderson was standing behind one of the fighting youths.
