Police say detectives have arrested 20-year-old Kawain Tyrell Smalls at his apartment in Woodbridge. He has been charged with murder, use of a firearm in commission of a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Investigators say the shooting was drug-related and Smalls and Wilson knew each other.
Police say this case and other possible suspects remains under investigation.
Wilson was gunned down Monday afternoon in a wooded area along a pathway between the high school and an adjacent neighborhood.
The 16-year-old was a junior who lived near the school. He was murdered at around 4:30 p.m. Monday.
The murder scene is marked by flowers and the memorial to Wilson is growing by the hour.
"My daughters walk this way to school every day so this is a little close to home for us,” one parent told us.
One man, who lives along the pathway and did not want to be identified, says he heard the teen getting murdered.
"About three shots,” he said. “Boom, boom, boom. And I got up and came to the back door."
That is when he says he saw the killer running from the murder scene.
"And all I caught in the peripheral vision was an individual running down the sidewalk,” he told us.
He says this is a popular hangout for kids before and after school. But not always up to any good.
"It's sad, it really is,” he said. “But there have been so many instances of fights, drug use, just all manner of problems that have occurred out here.”
Before the arrest, police say three young men were seen leaving the area in a pickup truck.
