Bloomington Police Chief Booker Hodges said that investigators think one of the teenagers fired the gun.
“I’m fairly confident we do have the person responsible for murdering the victim in custody,” Hodges said.
While Hodges said that a motive hasn’t been determined, police believe that the shooting might have been related to a “long-standing feud” between two groups.
