(Harrisburg) --  A man has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of a popular Harrisburg organizer killed in the warehouse where he staged events for kids and teens.

Wednesday's arrest of 26-year-old Jerren Stuckey happened on the same day Rayon Braxton was buried.

Harrisburg police say Stuckey, of Susquehanna Township, repeatedly shot the 25-year-old Braxton during an argument November 27.

They say the men knew each other.

Braxton's killing sparked outrage in the community where he had been working to provide safe events for youth in the warehouse he rented.

His was the second shooting death on November 27.

Rashaad Gallmon-Queen was killed as he sat in a vehicle.

A 15-year-old boy was arrested.

The deaths triggered marches and meetings on reducing violence.
