DETROIT - A days-long manhunt came to an end Tuesday as an uncle was arrested in connection with the deadly shooting of his nephew.

James Graham, 48, had been hiding from police since Friday after both his family and police said he fatally shot his nephew during an argument at a home on Ward Avenue.

Freeland Pridgen was just 16 years old. His family came together Tuesday to honor his memory.

Police said the boy was arguing with his uncle around 4 p.m. Friday when Graham pulled out a gun and shot the teen.

Pridgen was taken to the hospital and died over the weekend.
