Phoenix Teen Arrested For Shooting

Phoenix police say a 15 year old boy has been arrested in the killing of a Maricopa County detention officer who was shot in his own driveway Wednesday. Police Chief Daniel Garcia says that the teenager will be charged as an adult with first degree murder in the shooting of 27 year old Jorge Vargas.

Vargas was attacked last month while working on his car outside his home. He was wearing his uniform that identified him as a Maricopa County Sheriff's Office employee. Police say they believe Vargas was a random victim.
