Police have arrested a homicide suspect at his high school prom and taken him to their headquarters in a white tuxedo.

The 17-year-old boy arrested Friday at the Schenley High School prom is accused of participating in a March 1 robbery in which a 16-year-old accomplice was shot in the back by accident. The 16-year-old died two weeks later at a hospital.

Detectives on Thursday arrested a 20-year-old suspect and obtained a warrant for the 17-year-old.

Police say the boy was informed by a homicide detective that a warrant was out for his arrest but decided not to turn himself in and go to his prom instead.
