MADISON, TN (WSMV) -

16-year-old Kevon Mayberry is now in custody in relation to the shooting death of a 15-year-old boy outside his home on Jan. 23. 

According to Metro Police, the incident occurred around 7 p.m. on Brookway Drive.

The victim, identified as Thomas Howard, was standing on his porch with another teen when at least two shots were fired from a neighbor’s house.

Howard was struck in his side and died. The person he was with had a hole in his clothes from a bullet but was not hit.

Authorities identified Mayberry as the suspect shortly after the incident and believed he was visiting the neighbor’s home but does not live there.

Mayberry remained a fugitive for several days before surrendering at East Precinct on Saturday evening. 

Mayberry refused to be interviewed by detectives. He is now in custody at the juvenile detention facility and is scheduled for a hearing on Feb. 13.
