A 16-year-old boy was killed Friday in Madison and another juvenile is now in custody pending charges related to the death, according to police.

The teen was killed at 5:15 p.m. in the 300 block of Madison Ave., according to Madison Police Officer Michael Renth. Madison is located just south of Granite City in Madison County.

A male juvenile is being held pending formal charges from the Madison County State's Attorney's Office, Renth said.

Renth declined to release more information related to the killing because the victim and suspect were juveniles. Additional information may be released during a news conference likely to be held Monday.

The family of the deceased has been notified and an autopsy has been performed, Renth said.
