Police say they have arrested a juvenile in connection to the shooting death of U.S. Army soldier Xavier Arnold. Arnold's friend was also injured during the shooting prompted by what police believe was a robbery attempt on a bike trail in the Kirkwood neighborhood of Atlanta.

Police say 21-year-old Xavier Arnold died at Grady Memorial Hospital from the gunshot wound he received to his head while walking with his girlfriend and a friend along the trail in the 200 block of Warren Street in northeast Atlanta around 5:30 p.m. Thursday. His friend was also shot in the leg, but his girlfriend was uninjured.

Atlanta police say the juvenile will be charged with murder and a count of armed robbery. His name is not being released at this time due to his age.
