CONCORD -- A 16-year-old accused of a murder in Concord was taken into custody in Connecticut.

Omarrion Tymyrre Hudson, of Concord, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals, police confirmed Thursday night.

Hudson was wanted for first-degree murder in the shooting death of 31-year-old Derron Jordan.

The shooting happened just before 6 p.m. on Dec. 28 near the intersection of Lincoln Street and Malvern Drive in Concord's Logan Community.

Concord police say they are working with officials in Connection to arrange Hudson's extradition back to North Carolina.

Police responded to a shooting call on Dec. 28, and then found Jordan suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. 

He was transported by emergency responders but later died, according to police.

Officers identified Hudson as the shooter and obtained an arrest warrant on murder charges.

Police considered Hudson to be "armed and dangerous and should not be approached."

Police are still investigating the shooting.

It was the first of two shooting fatalities in Concord on Dec. 28.

At around 9 p.m., 13-year-old Aveanna Propst was shot and killed in the parking lot outside of Concord Mills Mall.

While police say the victims in the two shootings are related, the incidents don't appear to be connected.
