PATERSON, N.J. -- Members of the Paterson Police Warrant Squad nabbed a 21-year-old city man wanted on charges of killing a 16-year-old boy in February at his home Tuesday morning, authorities said.

It was the department's second murder arrest in less than 24 hours -- and the second in the Feb. 4 shooting death of Kasir Davis and the wounding of a 17-year-old companion at an Auburn Street apartment house that police said was being used as a drug den.
