The Daily Mail reported;
A teenage boy has been arrested in connection with a shooting that killed an eighth grade girl in Virginia, after a day-long manhunt.
Loved ones identified the victim as Lucia Whalen Bremer, an eighth-grade student at the Quioccasin Middle School in Richmond.
She was shot multiple times on Friday afternoon at the Gayton Forest West subdivision and died at an area hospital soon after.
Police said the suspected shooter fled the scene immediately after opening fire and was arrested on Saturday afternoon about a half-mile away.
His name has not been released due to his age but he is said to be facing charges including second-degree homicide, possession of a firearm by juvenile, and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, according to the Henrico Citizen.
Liberty Tree Farm announced the loss of their beloved daughter on Facebook.
UPDATE– More on the suspect.
Via Henrico Citizen:
“Police made the arrest early Saturday afternoon. A video provided by a source to the Citizen showed the teen being taken into custody peacefully by two officers at a home in the Raintree subdivision, about half a mile from where the murder occurred. Police yesterday had described the suspect as a younger Black male, a description that matched that of the teen they arrested Saturday.
Police are not naming the suspect because of his age. He is being processed at the Henrico County Sheriff’s Office this afternoon.”
