Arrest made in death of 15-year-old Atlanta girl

- Police have arrested a person for the murder of a teenage girl in Atlanta last week.

Officials said 17-year-old Micah Bolton turned himself into the Fulton County Jail Tuesday.

Police charged Bolton with murder in the shooting death of 15-year-old Nacari Newson who was killed outside a home on Greenleaf Circle last week.

Police said it looks like the shooting was an accident and not a drive-by as they first thought.

Police said other people were around at the time of the shooting and officers will continue to talk to possible witnesses to find out exactly what happened.
