DANBURY, CT (WFSB/AP) -

Another arrest was made in the death of an 18-year-old man who was found with fatal injuries next to his vehicle earlier this month.

Police charged 16-year-old Lorenzo Santana with felony murder on Thursday.  

The arrest of Santana comes after officers responded to a report of suspicious activity on Aug. 5. They found Gabriel Bara-Bardo alone and unconscious on the road next to his vehicle.

The state medical examiner's office ruled that Bara-Bardo's cause of death was complications following blunt impact to the head and neck. His death was ruled a homicide.

Police said 15-year-old Ronald Massagli was arrested Wednesday on charges of felony murder and other offenses.

Besides murder, Santana was second-degree robbery, second-degree criminal mischief, fifth-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit second-degree robbery, conspiracy to commit second-degree criminal mischief, conspiracy to commit fifth-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit felony murder. 

The incident remains under investigation by the Danbury Police Department and more arrests are expected.
