COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – A 16-year-old boy was arrested in New Orleans Thursday on murder charges in relation to the murder of a 20-year-old man in Colorado Springs last July.
Gary Thomas, 20, was shot and killed outside of a McDonald’s on S. Academy Boulevard in the early-morning hours of July 16, 2016.
Colorado Springs police announced Friday the suspect, a 16-year-old boy, was arrested Thursday in New Orleans on a warrant for first-degree murder. The warrant was issued March 7.
