Bridgeport, Chicago police arrested a 16-year-old boy in connection to a carjacking that led to the murder of the victim, Shuai Guan, reports NBC Chicago News. Chicago police said the 16-year-old boy was charged with two counts of aggravated vehicular assault and one count of possession of a stolen vehicle.
