MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) — McPherson Police Chief Robert McClarty says a 17-year-old boy has been arrested in the shooting death of a man whose body was found this week in a mobile home park.

McClarty says the boy was arrested Tuesday afternoon. His name was not released. The news release says the suspect was arrested on charges of first-degree murder, burglary, theft and possession of stolen property in the shooting death of a 22-year-old Jordan Krell, of Canton.

The suspect was booked into a juvenile detention center.

Canton’s body was found Monday lying in an empty lot at the mobile home park after McPherson police received a call about shots being fired.

McClarty says the investigation is continuing.
