Officials: 2nd Teen Arrested in Athlete's Death

PAHOKEE, Fla. (AP) _ Authorities say they've arrested the teen
who fatally shot Pahokee football player Norman Griffith Jr.
An 18-year-old linebacker and tight end, Griffith was shot in
the head as he drove away from a post-game dance in Belle Glade
early Saturday. The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says that
the fatal shot was fired by 16-year-old Willie Felton. Felton was
arrested Friday and charged with first-degree murder and armed
robbery.
Authorities say 17-year-old Carl Lee Booth Jr. was arrested
Thursday for participating in the shooting. Even though none of his
shots hit Griffith, Booth has been charged with first-degree
murder.
The sheriff's office said both teens remain in jail.
