Police have arrested two men and are looking for a third in connection with the shooting death of a teen following a dice game last month.

Ranod McKann, 16, was shot and killed the morning of Sept. 22 at the Landon Imperial Apartments in St. Nicholas, where he lived.

Police have arrested 20-year-old Antonio Atwater and 20-year-old Earl Grant. They said they're still looking for 20-year-old Tyrone Taylor.

Witnesses told police a group was playing a dice game in the courtyard, and when it ended, two men approached McKann (pictured right) and demanded money. Police said McKann's friend had won about $2,000.

One of the men who approached the teen fired a weapon at him, police said.
