Police in Racine, Wisconsin, have arrested a 31-year-old Illinois man in the shooting death of a Chicago teen earlier this month. Eighteen-year-old Lance Youngblood was shot in the head August 8th at a Racine gas station.

Investigators executed a search warrant Monday and arrested a 31-year-old man from Zion, Illinois. They say he's their primary suspect in the shooting but he hasn't been charged.

Police say two other people arrested in connection with the shooting remain in custody on other charges.

Police say there was a dispute among several people at the gas station, and someone fired into the vehicle carrying Youngblood as it pulled away.
