A Baton Rouge man was arrested Thursday in the shooting death of a 15-year-old in April, Baton Rouge Police said. 

Tedric Stevenson, 17, of 1825 Spanish Town Road, was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a count of second-degree murder, in the April 30 shooting death of Bobby Duncan Jr. 

Police said a CrimeStoppers tip helped in making the arrest.

Duncan was found by police on the evening of April 30, lying on the street in the 300 block of South 18th Street. Duncan, who had a gunshot wound to his head, died at the scene.

Police believe Stevenson shot Duncan after an altercation.

Duncan was found dead in the residential neighborhood, which includes an elementary school, an antiques store and a church all within a few blocks of where the shooting occurred.
