A teenager accused of killing a 16-year-old last week is now in jail.              

Carl Irons, Jr. turned himself in just after 6 p.m. Wednesday night.

Tulsa Police said Irons shot and killed 16-year-old Jeremiah Morris.              

Officers said Morris went with a group of people to buy a gun from Irons near 4th Street and Mingo last week.

Investigators said when Morris' group handed the gun to Irons, Irons decided he'd use the gun to rob them.
