A Texas high school football player is in jail facing a murder charge in the shooting of a teen at a Halloween party in La Grange over the weekend.
According to La Grange police, officers responded to a disturbance call around 3 a.m. Sunday at a VFW Hall. Upon arrival, police say they observed two people had been shot -- one in the back and one in the arm. Both were transported to the hospital.
Dustin Donovan Smith, 19, died at the hospital. The other individual, Quinton Harris, was treated for minor injuries to his arm and released.
Police say a fight at the party spilled out into the parking lot and that the suspect, JaKyle Harris, pulled out a gun and fired two shots.
KPRC-TV Houston reported the gun was recovered in a field behind Harris' home. Harris was arrested Sunday afternoon.
Texas Rangers arrested two other people -- both relatives of Harris -- and charged them with tampering with evidence. Police say the two tampered with the murder weapon and tried to destroy the clothes Harris was wearing during the shooting.
According to the Texas Rangers, the two other suspects are Jamar Glenn and Vonya Warfield. All three suspects are currently in the Colorado County Jail.
Harris, who lives in Weimar, is a popular student and running back on the Weimar High School football team.
The Weimar Independent School District released a statement which read, "WISD is deeply saddened by the incident that occurred in La Grange, Texas over the weekend. The District's thoughts and sympathies go out to the families and friends of the victims. The District has no information regarding the incident other than to state that it did not occur in connection with any school function or event. Weimar ISD has no further comment at this time."
La Grange Police Chief Jackie Skelton told KPRC-TV this was the first murder in La Grange in 20 years.
