SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department’s Homicide Squad took a 14-year-old suspect into custody Monday afternoon.

Police say the juvenile was taken into custody around 3:30 p.m. Detectives developed information about the suspect, leading them to the area of 300 E. 700 South. With the assistance of the SWAT team, the suspect was safely taken into custody. 

The suspect is accused of fatally shooting a 17-year-old male on Feb. 11 near 1601 West Ivy Circle. 

According to a SLCPD press release, 911 received a call Saturday night at 8:19 p.m.
