TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Tucson police announced Friday morning an arrest in connection with a killing following a fight on a Sun Tran bus Thursday.

Police arrested 17-year-old Michael A. Drake II on one count of first degree murder and booked him into the Pima County Jail.

Officers responded Thursday afternoon and found 16-year- old Kyle Jenkins on the ground with multiple stab wounds. Jenkins was transported to a Tucson hospital where he later died.

Witnesses on the bus told officers the suspect and Jenkins had an altercation.

A bus driver ordered the pair off the bus. Police say the fight continued in the street resulting in the fatal stabbing.
