COLLEGE PARK, Ga. -- Police in suburban Atlanta say a man has been arrested in the shooting death of former Los Angeles Angels first-round draft pick Ryan Bolden.

College Park Police Maj. E.W. Strozier said Monday that 25-year-old Stacie Williams is charged with felony murder and is being held in the Fulton County jail.

Police have said a dispute between children at an apartment complex over candy Dec. 17 escalated with adults getting involved and the 23-year-old Bolden eventually being shot.

Strozier says Williams was already in jail on charges linked to a domestic dispute when he was charged in Bolden's death Jan. 1. It's unclear if Williams has an attorney.

Bolden, of Madison, Mississippi, was drafted out of Madison Central High School and played for the Los Angeles Angels between 2010 and 2013.
