MANSFIELD, Texas (AP) — Authorities in North Texas say a 24-year-old man has been arrested in Houston for a slaying near Fort Worth nearly a decade ago.

Police in Mansfield, about 20 miles (32.19 kilometers) southeast of Fort Worth, say the man in custody was 15 when Danny Lee Ramsey III was found unresponsive in a shopping center parking lot in June 2008. The medical examiner determined Ramsey, from Alvarado, had been shot in the chest.

Mansfield police say recently developed new information led to the arrest last week by their detectives and Texas Rangers. The man in custody isn’t being identified because he was a juvenile at the time of the killing.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports he’s held on $1 million bond and is awaiting transfer to the Tarrant County Jail.
