Chihuahua State Police now say they have one suspect in custody, connected to the massacre of 16 teens in Juarez over the weekend.

20 gunmen showed up at a birthday party in South Juarez over the weekend after the opened fire on a house full of high school and college students.

16 of those teens have died and at least 12 more are fighting to stay alive.

Chihuahua State Police say the gunmen responsible may also have killed 4 people in another shooting in November.

Monday night, as our crews were attempting to talk with family members of the victim, a frantic woman approached them saying it was her son that the Mexican military came and arrested in connection with the shootings.

We are working to confirm whether or not this woman's son was arrested and is the same person State Police now have in custody.
