Authorities in Grant County have arrested a suspect in the February 16 fatal shooting of Brandon Mende.

Mende was shot and killed last Sunday morning in the yard of a residence in the 6000 block of Turnkey Road in Moses Lake.

The suspect in Mende's shooting, 17-year-old Michael Meier, was arrested at 425 North Grape Drive Thursday morning.

Members of the Grant County Sheriff's Office, Moses Lake Police Department and U.S. Marshals Service worked together to arrest Meier.

"I want to thank everyone who stepped forward with tips, and also all the witnesses who stepped up to give us the information we needed to make the arrest," Grant County Sheriff Tom Jones said.

Meier is facing a single charge of first-degree murder.
