4 arrested in connection with teen’s death

Posted: Updated:

Austin police have arrested four suspects in connection to the murder of a 16-year-old boy.

APD's gang unit picked up 35-year-old Christina Reynero, 17-year-old Juan Jose Reynero, 18-year-old Arthur Estrada III, and a juvenile last night.

Detectives say the four are involved in gang but wouldn't mention which ones.

On Thursday evening around 6 p.m., investigators say the four were involved in a large fight over stolen items.

They used sticks, poles and a board to beat up 16-year-old Jorge Luis Medina Jr., who later died at Dell Children's Hospital.

"There were participants in this fight affiliated with gangs however, we don't think this was gang related or associated. Just has to do with a disagreement between the parties,"  APD Sgt. Scott Ehlert said.

Police are also investigating a fire that happened Friday at a residence near the crime scene. They are not saying whether its connected at this time.
