INDIANAPOLIS – Indianapolis police have arrested a 16-year-old youth in connection with the slaying of a 24-year-old Indianapolis man who was fatally shot while on a pre-dawn walk.

Police said the youth was arrested Tuesday in connection with the April 1 slaying of Nathan Trapuzzano on the city's west side.
