COLUMBUS (AP) — Authorities in central Ohio say a 14-year-old boy accused of gunning down a 64-year-old man had been sought since he cut off an electronic-monitoring bracelet last week.
The boy was arrested after Monday’s night shooting at an apartment on the southeast side of Columbus. He’s facing a delinquency count of murder.
Records said the boy was put on electronic monitoring after he was caught driving without a license and failing to pull over for officers while driving a stolen car on Jan. 20. Records said he cut off the bracelet and disappeared Jan. 29.
Police say the teen fatally shot Anthony Hines and took his wallet. Police haven’t said how they came to arrest him in connection with the slaying.
