BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. (AP) — Jackson County authorities have arrested a 17-year-old boy in the shooting death last year of another teen inside of a Blue Springs residence.

The Kansas City Star reports that Aden Kaler of Blue Springs was arrested Friday and charged with second-degree murder, attempted robbery and armed criminal action in the Nov. 10 shooting death of 17-year-old Jayden Lockett.

Police found Lockett dead on Nov. 11 when they responded to a report of shots being fired at a Blue Springs home. Officers also found a 19-year-old with minor injuries and a 15-year-old with critical injuries.

Court records say witnesses told police that Lockett and Kaler went to the home to rob someone of money and drugs.

Kaler’s bond has been set at $300,000.
