MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) - A teenager has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a man in Meridian in February.

Meridian Police Department spokesman Mike Vick says the 17-year-old has been charged with murder in the death of 35-year-old Andrew Tamayo. The shooting occurred in a convenience store parking lot on Feb. 27.

Tamayo died of his injuries in early March.
