DALLAS (NBC DFW) - A 16-year-old was arrested in connection with a September slaying in West Dallas, police say.

The teen was taken into custody overnight by Dallas officers and Irving SWAT in the 1400 block of North O’Connor Road, near West Grauwyler Road, Dallas police said.

The teen, whose identity has not been released because he is a juvenile, has been charged with murder and aggravated assault, police said.

The 16-year-old was suspected in Frederick Denavel Ford's slaying.

Ford, 18, was found dead Sept. 30 in the driver’s seat of a Dodge Charger with a gunshot wound to the head, police said.
