Authorities have arrested a teenager in connection with the killing of a 15-year-old boy whose body was apparently left in a snowy parking lot near a dog park in St. Paul.
The suspect is a 16-year-old boy whose identity has not been released, police said Monday night.
Police have not said where or when the killing occurred. The body of Angel Gabriel Reyeshernandez of St. Paul was found Sunday in the parking lot of the Arlington Arkwright Park east of Interstate 35E.
One officer was heard on emergency dispatch audio saying it appeared the body had been dumped there, pointing out that a "vehicle pulled in here … pulled out [and] there's tire tracks going southbound on Arkwright [Street]." The victim appeared to have been shot in the head, an officer was heard saying.
The suspected vehicle was occupied by four males, the dispatch audio said.
Anyone with any information about the case is urged to call police at 651-291-1111. This was St. Paul's 17th homicide this year, compared with 22 in 2017.
