16 year-old arrested in connection with body found near Walgreens

Colorado Springs Police have made another arrest in the City's latest murder.

A 16 year-old was arrested and charged with first degree murder late last night. His name has not been released because he is a juvenile.

Otto Joseph Pobanz III was taken into custody by members of the Tactical Enforcement Unit yesterday at the Austin Park apartments on Harmony Drive near Austin Bluffs and Academy Blvd. Police spokesman Larry Herbert says the arrest was made without incident.

Pobanz is a suspect in the shooting death of William Walsh, 26. Walsh's body was found in a field behind a Walgreens Pharmacy on South Academy and Chelton Rd. Monday afternoon. He has also been charged with first degree murder.

This marks the 16th homicide of 2013 in Colorado Springs.
