A second suspect wanted in connection with an Asbury Park shooting that left a 10-year-old boy dead and his mother wounded has been arrested in Florida.
The Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office announced the arrest of 18-year-old Karon Council, of Neptune Township, Sunday night.
Authorities say Council was arrested in Pompano Beach. He will be held at the Broward County Jail before being extradited to New Jersey to face charges including murder, conspiracy to commit murder, aggravated assault and weapons offenses.

A 16-year-old Neptune Township boy was taken into custody earlier and faces the same charges following Wednesday night's shooting of Yovanni Banos-Merino in his Asbury Park home. The boy's 38-year-old mother was treated at a hospital. Police say it appears another person in the home was the actual target.
