US marshals arrest 16-year-old murder suspect at Frayser high school

US Marshals led a group of law enforcement officers to arrest a 16-year-old at a high school on a first-degree murder charge stemming from a killing in April.

The 16-year-old, whose identity was not publicly released, was arrested Tuesday at high school in Frayser, according to sources familiar with the matter.

In a release, the US Marshals Service described the arrest as occurring “without incident.”

Marshals made the arrest around 11:45 am Tuesday, according to Deputy US Marshal Seth Bruce, spokesperson, who declined to confirm the name of the school or whether the teen was a student there.

Arrests by marshals at schools are uncommon.

They happen “not very often,” Bruce said, “but occasionally if the case we are working demands it.”
