SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Spokane Police Chief Frank Straub says authorities believe they have arrested everyone involved in the beating death of an 88-year-old World War II veteran last week.

A second teen suspect was arrested without incident early Monday morning in a Spokane home. The first suspect turned himself in last week.

Both suspects are 16-years-old.

Straub said Monday morning that police believe they have in custody everyone involved in the robbery and beating death of Delbert Belton last Wednesday night.

The death of the veteran who was wounded in the battle for Okinawa has drawn nationwide attention and sparked outrage on social media.
