A teenager wanted for gunning down another teen in Larimer was arrested on Monday by U.S. Marshals in Tennessee.

Authorities have been searching for Tyqwan Brooks, 17, of Lincoln-Lemington since the Sept. 5 death of Elijah Washington, 17, whose father found him dead in bushes near the Larimer Avenue Bridge.

Pittsburgh police arrested Shawn Jones, 18, of Beaver Falls on Sept. 12 in connection with Washington's death. He was charged with homicide, robbery and criminal conspiracy.

Brooks was taken into custody without incident at about 5:30 a.m. in Antioch, Tenn., according to the U.S. Marshals Service. In addition to homicide and conspiracy, he faces a charge of carrying a firearm without a license.
