NEW ORLEANS -- A teenager is behind bars on charges that he shot and killed an 18-year-old man whose body was found on a Central City school campus Monday.

Police booked 17-year-old Glenn Metz, IV with the second-degree murder of 18-year-old Jamal Christian.

NOPD spokesman Officer Frank Robertson said residents in the area identified Metz.
