MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A juvenile has been arrested and charged with murder in connection to Thursday night’s fatal shooting of a Montgomery man, police have confirmed.

The suspect, identified only as a juvenile male, was taken into custody Friday and transported to the Montgomery County Youth Facility.
