LITHIA SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) — Authorities in Georgia say one teen has been accused of killing another after they argued about a video game controller.

Douglas County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Jesse Hambrick said deputies responded to a call about loud noises at a mobile home park in Lithia Springs around 12:45 a.m. Monday. They found 17-year-old Gonzalo Lamar Gonzalez-Abara dead and arrested 16-year-old Gabriel Martinez Cruz.

Lithia Springs is about 20 miles west of Atlanta.

Hambrick said an investigation determined the two teenagers were arguing about a video game controller when Gonzalez-Abara was shot.

Cruz has been charged as an adult on counts of malice murder and tampering with evidence.
