The child eventually recovered from his injuries and was released from the hospital as OSBI agents continued to sort through leads.

On Wednesday afternoon, agents arrested a teenager on a warrant for first-degree murder, shooting with intent to kill and first-degree burglary.

Investigators say the suspect, who is 14-years-old, was arrested at his home in Corn and was booked into the Washita County Jail.

So far, the suspect’s identity has not been released.
