(Scroll down for video) A teen boy was arrested and charged with murder after he allegedly killed two teens, according to police reports in New Jersey.
Newark Police said that they arrested the boy on Tuesday, after being accused of the killing.
Prosecutors said that the 15-year-old boy was charged with murder after killing a 13-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy, who lived nearby.
The child, whose name was not released because of his age, is also accused of attempted murder of a third victim. He has also been charged with weapons related charges. He is being held in a juvenile detention center.
News of the arrest comes as hundreds of people gathered to mourn Zainee Hailey at her funeral, which was held at the New Zion Baptist Church in Elizabeth.
Hailey, an honor student, was killed along with the teenage neighbor Kasson Morman last week, when the boy began shooting on Schley Street.
Another boy was also shot, but survived.
