2 more teens arrested in fatal shooting of UArizona student

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Two additional teenagers have been arrested in the Feb. 20 shooting death of a University of Arizona student in a campus parking garage, Tucson police Saturday.

The two youths arrested Friday and one arrested Thursday are all 17 years old, police said.

The three youths were all arrested and jailed on suspicion of first-degree murder and drive-by shooting in the killing of Forrest Keys, police said.

Online court records didn't indicate whether arrested youths had defense lawyers who could comment on their behalf.

The Associated Press generally does not identify juvenile criminal suspects.

Keys, 20, was a sophomore from Philadelphia majoring in communications.

According to police, Keys was walking with friends in the garage at about 11 p.m. when a verbal altercation took place between him and people riding in a car.

“”Details are still extremely limited but will be released once they become available," according to a Police Department statement.
