Teen arraigned on murder charges after drive-by story image

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Thursday, an 18-year-old man was arraigned on murder charges in the drive-by shooting death of a 16-year-old boy.

Last August, Luis Gonzalez was killed in the 700 block of Coate Court in Grand Rapids.

Months later, investigators identified Juan Chavarria as a suspect, determining he had lied and given false information during the investigation.

Earlier this week, the Kent County Prosecutor's Office authorized a two-count warrant charging Chavarria with open murder and felony firearm Wednesday.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for August 28.
