SEATTLE (AP) — The King County Sheriff’s Office says a 16-year-old was arrested after an argument Friday inside a SeaTac convenience store continued outside and ended with the fatal shooting of a 22-year-old man who was in his car.

The Seattle Times reports the SeaTac boy was arrested Saturday at his apartment near the 7-Eleven store, where the shooting happened, says a probable-cause statement.
