Teenager arrested in home invasion slaying
Trenton police charged a 17-year-old male juvenile on March 2 for the murder of Louis Bryan Alvarez, 25, of Trenton.
The teen, who police did not identify because he was a juvenile, had been in custody on robbery charges when police charged him with murder.
According to police on Feb. 26, the suspect was banging on the door of a home on the 200 block of Fulton Street when Alvarez answered the door. Alvarez and the suspect exchanged words before Alvarez shut the door on the suspect. As Alvarez retreated in the home, the teen allegedly fired a single shot through the window, striking Alvarez in the torso. Police found him unresponsive at the home and was declared dead at the Capital Health Regional Medical Center.
