Wichita Police said 20-year-old Tyler Eugene Kelly was arrested Friday on suspicion of first-degree murder and aggravated assault in connection with the July 17 shooting death of 16-year-old Joseph Florence.

A 16-year-old boy had already been arrested on suspicion of felony murder.

Police have said that Kelly and the 16-year-old who was arrested both knew Florence, and a fight broke out between the three of them after the suspects went to Florence’s home in north Wichita and all three were struck by gunfire.
