    Iquan Williams,16, was shot and killed on a Brooklyn street.

    Police say they have arrested a 17-year-old in connection with a shooting on a Brooklyn street last weekend that left another teen dead.

    Jahiem Spruill was arrested and charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon for allegedly shooting and killing Iquan Williams,16, last Saturday night, authorities say.

    Officials found Williams, pictured above, with a gunshot wound to the head in front of 1856 Prospect Place in Brownsville. Williams was unresponsive and declared dead on the scene by emergency responders.

    Community leaders held a rally last weekend over Williams' death on the street where he was shot, calling for an end to gun violence.

    Information on a lawyer for Spruill was not immediately available.
