THE BRONX — A suspect has been arrested in the fatal shooting of Brandon Hendricks, a Bronx teen who was killed just days after graduating high school, police said Monday.

The James Monroe High School graduate was a star basketball player with a bright future ahead of him. His family, friends, team and coaches were stunned by his sudden death.
