(WMC-TV) - A 16-year-old has been taken into custody in connection to the drive-by shooting that killed a Memphis high school student on Christmas Day.

Investigators aren't allowed to release the teen's name because of Mississippi state law and haven't revealed on what the 16-year-old's involvement in the case may be.

Corey Albright, who also goes by the name of Corey Pool, was arrested Tuesday night for the shooting, according to a Marshall County Sheriff's Department spokesman.

The 31-year-old has been charged with one count of murder in the Christmas Day death of Derica Patterson and five counts of drive-by shooting.

Investigators say Rico R. Fleming, other man wanted in connection to the case, is still at large and should be considered armed and dangerous.

If anyone has any information on Fleming's location, they should contact the Marshall County Sheriff's Department at 662-252-1311 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-2169.
