A 19-year-old man was found dead Sunday evening inside a northeast Atlanta apartment.

Officers were investigating a report of shots fired at the Lenox View apartments on Woodland Avenue when they discovered the victim about 7:15 p.m. He had been shot at least once and was dead at the scene, according to Atlanta police.

He was identified by police as Christian Vidales Manzanarez, who lived in another apartment building blocks away on Lenox Road.

On Monday, police arrested a teenage boy in connection with Manzanarez’s death. He was being held in a juvenile detention center on charges of felony murder and possession of a gun during the commission of a felony.

His name was not released because he is a minor, a police spokesman said.
