A 20-year-old high school student is charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a fellow student in eastern Pennsylvania.

Police in Reading say they arrested Keenan McMaster on Thursday inside Reading High School, where he had been filling out paperwork over a school suspension.

Police say McMaster shot and killed 19-year-old Jason Rodriguez on November 24, two days before the younger man was to be married. Investigators say the men had been involved in a dispute, but did not release details.

Authorities say a witness picked McMaster out of a lineup.

Rodriguez's family tells the Reading Eagle newspaper that he was two classes away from graduating high school.

It was not immediately clear if McMaster had an attorney.
