A teen stood up for a smaller student. Later the bully killed him, police say.

A teenager in Arlington, Texas, who stood up for a smaller boy in a bullying incident was killed days later by the bully, according to authorities and the teen’s family.

โ€œAfter he broke up the fight, he started having trouble with the suspect,โ€ Arlington Police Lt. Christopher Cook said, according to NBC News Dallas Fort-Worth.

Police said they responded to a call shortly after 4:30 p.m. on Thursday to find Samuel Reynolds, 16, with a gunshot wound. He was transported to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

NBC News Dallas Fort-Worth reported Friday that the suspected shooter is between 13 and 15 years old and lives in the same apartment complex as Reynolds’ family. His identity was not released because of his age.

The suspect initially denied involvement in the shooting, the local NBC station reported. But police said they had obtained footage from the complex that showed the entire incident.

โ€œHe pulls out a handgun from the rear part of his pants he was wearing, points it at the victim and fires one round,โ€ Cook told reporters Friday. โ€œWe did recover one spent shell casing. Itโ€™s a .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun.โ€

The teen faces a murder charge and has been transported to a juvenile detention center, though it remains unclear whether he will be tried as an adult or child.
