AUBURN, Wash. (AP) -- Officers arrested a 16-year-old wanted in a fatal Auburn shooting when he showed up at his mother's house in Kent disguised as a girl.

Auburn police Cmdr. Mike Hirman says James Anthony Mills had cut his dreadlocks and was wearing a wig, dress and high-heel shoes.

Officers booking him into King County Juvenile Detention Monday night for investigation of murder in Sunday's shooting of 16-year-old Adrian Wilson.

The two teens reportedly had a dispute over a girl, and violence erupted when Mills arrived with friends at a Sunday barbecue-birthday party at an Auburn apartment complex.

The victim's father, 46-year-old Gabriel Wilson, is accused of firing shots during the melee and was arrested for investigation of assault.

Hirman says two men wounded during the shooting have been upgraded to serious condition.
