Police have arrested a 16-year-old boy after a man was shot and killed in early November in Tucson.

A shooting at an apartment complex left one dead on Nov. 2 near East 29th Street and South Swan Road in Tucson, according to the Tucson Police Department.

Police identified the victim as 23-year-old Andres Guillermo Franco.

The victim was found at the location's parking lot suffering from a gunshot wound and was taken to a local hospital where he died later that day, police said.

According to Tucson police, witnesses said Franco had engaged in an argument with the shooter, who left the scene after the incident and could not be located by police after searching the area.

On Nov. 11, police identified the 16-year-old as the suspect after collecting evidence and conducting follow-up interviews, according to an update released Friday.

The teenager was charged with first-degree murder and was taken to a Pima County jail, the Police Department said.

The Arizona Republic is not naming the suspect because he is a minor. As of Saturday, The Republic was not able to confirm if he was being tried as an adult.
