CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - A Clovis man wanted in the 2005 killing of a sleeping 10-year-old boy has been taken into custody in Mexico. Clovis District Attorney Matt Chandler confirmed Tuesday for the Clovis News Journal that Noe Torres was arrested nearly a week ago in Mexico City.
Chandler declined to discuss the arrest or address plans to return Torres to the U.S. to stand trial.
Authorities say Torres and three accomplices fired nine bullets into a Clovis apartment window on Sept. 15, 2005.
Police say the shooting was retaliation for an argument that took place hours earlier between Clovis High School students.
Eight bullets struck furniture inside the home, striking Carlos Perez in the head. The boy died one day shy of his 11th birthday.
Police have said Carlos' older brother Ruben was the intended target.
