A 12-year-old boy wanted in connection with a murder has been arrested almost 400 miles away from the shooting scene.

Jarrell Milton vanished after Jamymell Ray, 31, was fatally shot in Omaha, Nebraska, on June 29.

NBC station WOWT reported that the pre-teen was arrested in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on Tuesday night.

His brother Jamar Milton, 17, and Shuntayvious Primes-Willis, 15, have been charged with first-degree murder. They appeared in court and were denied bond on Tuesday.

Prosecutors say that Ray and friend Charles Fisher had arranged to meet the kids in a park to sell them marijuana when they were hit by gunfire.

Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine told WOWT that all three young suspects had carried weapons.

Fisher, 30, was treated and released from the hospital.
