Reports say a relative of a tribal chief has been arrested in connection with last week's shootings on the Red Lake Indian reservation in Minnesota. The relative is suspected of helping to plan the attack; he also reportedly expected to take part in the killings. Prior to the arrest, authorities believed 16-year-old gunman Jeff Weise acted alone when he shot nine people before killing himself.
