ASBURY PARK, N.J. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a teenager in connection with a shooting that left a 10-year-old boy dead and his mother wounded.

But it’s not yet known what sparked the shooting that occurred around 11 p.m. Wednesday at a home on Ridge Avenue in Asbury Park.

The teen arrested Thursday at Neptune High School is believed to have been an accomplice of the shooter, who remains at large. Authorities haven’t released the teen’s name or say what charges the youth faces.

Monmouth County prosecutors have not released the victims’ names or released many details on the shooting, citing the ongoing investigation. They say the wounded 39-year-old woman was treated at a hospital for injuries that are not considered life-threatening and has since been released
