A Texas 16-year-old boy was fatally shot days after breaking up a fight involving a bully who has been charged with his murder, according to reports.

Arlington police said that after intervening in the fight, Sam Reynolds started having trouble with his accused killer, a boy between 13 and 15, WFAA-TV reported.
