LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville Metro Police have arrested a 62-year-old man in a shooting that left a Louisville teen dead.

Police were called around 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 9 to the 200 block of South 41st Street, just blocks from Shawnee High School. Investigators say officers found 15-year-old Andrew Elliott of Gheens Avenue dead in an alley.

Police arrested Archie Ashley around 2:30 a.m. Oct. 10. According to a police report, Ashley confronted three juveniles he says were throwing rocks at his home and vehicle.
