ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) – Authorities have made an arrest in the slaying of a woman in northern New Jersey.

Yessenia Feliciano, 34, was gunned down down when she answered the door of her Elizabeth home early Sunday.

Union County Prosecutor Theodore Romankow said an anonymous caller phoned a tip that led police to the 17-year-old suspect in Newark late Sunday night.

He was charged with murder and weapon offenses. His name has not been released because he’s a juvenile and it’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
