GADSDEN, AL (WBRC) -

Gadsden police have arrested a fifth teenager in the murder of an 18-year-old on Thursday night.

Etowah County Coroner London Pearce has identified the victim as Aaron Huff of Gadsden.

Police responded to the area of Hoke Street and Litchfield Avenue on a report of shots fired in the area. While responding, they got a call from Gadsden Regional Hospital where there was a victim suffering from a gunshot wound.

Huff was a passenger in a car when he was shot and taken to the hospital by the driver.

17-year-old Tyler Michael Abbott of Hanceville, 16-year-old Blake Whitworth of Gadsden,  17-year-old Jesse Altman of Rainbow City,  18-year-old Broderick Pearson of Gadsden and 17-year-old Lonterry Orlando Harrison of Gadsden are all charged with one count of capital murder.
 
All of the suspects are being held in the Etowah County Jail without bond.

Detectives believe Huff and Abbott knew each other and they met in a nearby parking lot just prior to the shooting, where there was an altercation.
