It’s been nearly a week since a WWII veteran who survived the Battle of Okinawa was brutally beaten to death by two teenagers in Spokane, Washington.
Now, police have located and arrested the second suspect in connection with 88-year-old Delbert Belton’s death.
Kenan Adams-Kinard was arrested about 3 a.m., according to police. He is one of the 16-year-olds who allegedly beat Belton after a botched robbery outside of the Eagles Lodge where he loved to play pool and hang with his friends.
According to CNN, authorities named Adams-Kinard during the search even though he is a juvenile, saying “he represents … an actual danger to the community.” They have yet to identify the other suspect, who was taken into custody last week.
And despite rumors that the attack was racially motivated (also fueled by the tragic death of Chris Lane last week), police say that race was not the motive.
We’ll keep you updated on the latest in this case. Our prayers are with Belton’s family at this time.
