15 Y/O arrested for killing another 15 Y/O

Syracuse, N.Y. – A shocking arrest today after the murder of a 15-year-old in Syracuse earlier this week.

City police say another 15-year-old boy has been arrested and he's accused of killing 15-year-old Akil Williams Wednesday night. Williams was shot on Cannon Street and later died at a city hospital. City police say they conducted several interviews and canvassed the neighborhood and then arrested the 15-year-old.

He's now been charged with second Degree Murder and Criminal Possession of a weapon. There appears to have been some dispute between the two teens which lead to the shooting.

The alleged murderer’s name is being withheld because of his age.

Officers say that they are still investigation and that anyone with information is asked to all investigators at (315) 442-5222 or leave an anonymous tip using the SPD Tips app for your iPhone and Android Device.
