Another development in the execution-style slayings of three friends in Newark.
A prosecutor's spokesman says the man wanted in the slayings is arranging to surrender.
The word comes minutes after Mayor Cory Booker announced a warrant for Jose Carranza's arrest. The 31-year-old is accused of three counts or murder, four counts of robbery and one count of attempted murder.
Authorities say fingerprint and ballistics evidence led them to Carranza.
Police arrested a 15-year-old boy late last night. His name has not been released because of his age.
Authorities have said robbery appeared to be the motive for the killings. Booker says the crime was not racially motivated. Carranza is Latino and the victims are black.
Three of the victims were forced to kneel against a wall and were shot at close range. A fourth survived.
