YORK, Pa. (WHTM) — A second suspect has been caught from a May homicide on Smyser Street in York City, police announced on Friday.

A minor was caught and arrested by United States Marshals on the first block of W. Pennsylvania Avenue in Stewartstown, York County. The suspect was wanted for the shooting death of Whispering Wind Bear Spirit on May 3.

The suspect’s relative was previously arrested last month for the homicide which stemmed from a robbery attempted involving marijuana.
