CHICAGO (AP) — Police say they've made an arrest in last summer's shooting death of the 19-year-old son of a Chicago police officer.

Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi (goo-lee-EHL'-mee) says 18-year-old Anthony Moore of Chicago has been charged in the Aug. 14 slaying of Arshell Dennis III.

Dennis was on his family's porch with a friend on Chicago's Southwest Side when a man walked up and opened fire. The friend was shot in his arm.

Police said then that Dennis was likely killed by someone who mistakenly thought he was member of a rival gang. Dennis' death was one of 91 homicides during the deadliest month in Chicago in two decades.

It wasn't immediately known if Moore had a lawyer to comment on his behalf. He is charged with first-degree murder.
