DIXON, Calif. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a 16-year-old boy on suspicion of fatally shooting a 17-year-old boy in the Northern California town of Dixon.

The Sacramento Bee reports the suspect was arrested Saturday afternoon in Vacaville.

John Cox, the police chief in Dixon, said the victim was shot Friday night in a park. He said two groups of teens were in the park at the time of the shooting and that the attack was "not a random act."

The shooting was the first homicide in the town since 2008.
