Police say this man is wanted for the murder of a senior citizen Sept. 22, 2020, in Fernwood.

Police released surveillance photos in November in an attempt to identify two suspects in the case. The videos showed a man inside a convenience store and younger person walking outside.
The teen, who was arrested Wednesday on the Near West Side, was expected to appear in juvenile court Thursday. The second suspect has not been charged, police said Thursday.
Police asked anyone with tips on the case to call detectives at 312-747-8271.
