A 15-year-old Sanford boy was arrested Friday night for the shooting death of a 14-year-old boy.
According to Sanford Police, a call was placed just before 9 p.m. Friday night in the 300 block of McIver Street just blocks from downtown Sanford. When police arrived, they found the young victim on a couch on the front porch of the home. He was pronounced dead at the scene from an apparent gunshot to his head.
Shortly after, detectives obtained a secure custody order — required to assume custody of a juvenile — and arrested the 15-year-old, charging him with murder and possession of a firearm by a minor.
Names in the case have been withheld by Sanford Police. The 15-year-old was taken to a facility in Cumberland County pending his appearance in juvenile court.
