SPOKANE, Wash. -

A family friend of the teen wanted for allegedly beating a WWII veteran to death has made a public plea for the boy to turn himself in.

On Wednesday, 88-year-old Delbert "Shorty" Belton was beaten and robbed in his car while waiting for a friend in the parking lot of the Fraternal Order of Eagles in North Spokane.

Witnesses said they saw two teens running away from the scene. With the help of nearby surveillance camera's, police identified the suspects at 16-year-old Demetruis Glenn and 16-year-old Kenan Adams-Kinard.

Glenn turned himself in Thursday night, however Adams-Kinard is still on the run.

A family friend, who didn't not want to be identified, shared this message with KXLY:

"I would like to make an appeal to him, to Kenan, from his family to please, please come home or turn yourself in," he said.

On Friday, Spokane Police Chief Frank Straub said he was confident the second suspect would be arrested sooner than later.

As for Glenn, even though he's a minor, he's been charged as an adult for first degree murder and robbery.
