LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A fourth teenager is in custody and charged with murder in connection with a robbery in which a man was shot and killed in the Highlands last Sunday night. 

A 13-year-old boy was arrested Saturday, and is charged with murder, robbery, and auto theft by unlawful taking.

Jason Spencer, 30, was walking with his wife on Everett Avenue when he was killed. LMPD said Spencer exchanged gunfire with two suspects.

Three 15-year-old boys were arrested earlier this week in connection with the murder. According to LMPD, they are also facing murder, robbery, and auto theft charges. 

None of the suspects have been publicly identified, as juvenile records are sealed.
