Granite City Police have a suspect in custody in the shooting death of a 13-year-old boy. Clayton Veninga was sitting on the front porch of his Granite City home Monday night when someone walked up and opened fire. Clayton was hit in the side and later pronounced dead at an area hospital. An unidentified adult was arrested Thursday night.
He was reportedly an acquaintance of the boy's, but authorities did not disclose his age other than to say he would be able to be charged as an adult. The case is expected to be presented today to the Madison County State's Attorney's Office.
