Police: Teenage boy fatally shot, suspect arrested in Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police say a 17-year-old boy has died after he was shot at a house in central Ohio and a suspect is in custody.

A statement from Columbus police says Jordan T. Moore was shot around 1 a.m. Wednesday and died a short time later at a hospital.
