INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis police say a 15-year-old boy has been arrested in the fatal shooting of two teenage siblings.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says the juvenile was arrested Monday afternoon. He is suspected in the killings of 16-year-old Nicholas Nelson and his 15-year-old sister, Ashlynn Nelson in an Indianapolis apartment on Friday.
Marion County prosecutors will review the case and make a charging decision. Under Indiana law, a judge must decide whether defendants under the age of 16 accused of murder are tried in adult or juvenile court.
Police officers who attended the scene of the shooting said a male fled when they arrived.
WXIN-TV reports that a vigil was held Sunday for the siblings, who were Lawrence North High School students.
