DALLAS (AP) — Dallas police say a man has been arrested in the slaying of a 4-year-old boy whose body was found lying on a neighborhood street.
Dallas police announced the arrest late Saturday night but have not yet released the man’s name.
Police received a call that there was a child dead in the street at about 6:50 a.m. Saturday.
Assistant Police Chief Albert Martinez has said it appeared the child suffered a violent death and that “an edged weapon” was used.
He said it’s believed the child was killed at about 5 a.m.
