Teen, 15, held in death of another teenager

Agents detained a 15 year old boy Thursday evening in the murder of a 17 year old boy that occurred that same evening, according to a bulletin.

As in some states in the United States, the Judicial Investigation Organization cannot legally disclose the names of minors involved in crimes.

The bulletin says that the two youths were with other friends when they got into an argument. The 15-year-old went home to obtain a knife, came back to find the other boy and stabbed him in the armpit, said agents.

The stabbing occurred at around 7 p.m. according to the bulletin near an unspecified eating place in San Juan de Dios de Desamparados.
