BURTON, MI (WNEM) -

Police have arrested a second suspect in connection to the deadly shooting on Dort Highway on Friday, Burton Police Det. Don Schreiber said.

Drayquan Jones, 16, was shot and killed during a gunfight on Friday, March 30.

Officers were dispatched to Dort Highway, just north of Hemphill Road near the Flint and Burton border about 9:15 p.m.

Burton Police Lt. Mike Odette said there was a gunfight going on between a group on the west side of Dort Highway in Flint and a group on the east side of Dort Highway in Burton.

Odette said Jones was shot in the chest and died from his injury.

The fight began as a verbal argument at the Marathon gas station at Dort Highway and Hemphill Road.

Police have arrested a 15-year-old boy and a 24-year-old Flint man in connection to Jones' death.

Prosecutors are deciding if they will charge the teenager as a juvenile or an adult.

Schreiber said they are looking for at least one other suspect.

No one else was injured, but some bystanders' cars were hit in the gunfire.

If you have any information about this incident you are asked to contact Burton police at 810-742-2542.
