Hillsborough, N.C. (AP) Authorities in Durham, North Carolina, say they have arrested the second suspect wanted in the slaying of university of North Carolina student-body president Eve Carson.

Police say 17-year-old Lawrence Lovette junior surrendered this morning to police and swat team officers who had surrounded his house in Hillsborough.

Yesterday, police arrested 21-year-old Demario Atwater of Durham. He's being held without bond on charges of first-degree murder.

The 22-year-old Carson was found dead last week, lying on a street about a mile from campus. She had been shot several times.

Carson was a highly regarded biology and political science major from Athens, Georgia.

Police had focused their investigation on several ATM and convenience store surveillance photos.
