A man was arrested and charged in connection with the shooting death of a teen in the early hours of Sunday morning, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

The shooting happened near Atasca South Street and Treeline Drive, Harris County Sgt. Greg Pinkins said.

Brodrick Pappillion, 19, was charged with murder, deputies said.

Around 2 a.m., deputies responded to reports of a shooting in the 6800 block of Treeline Drive. Responding deputies found a teen, approximately 18 years old, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in a bayou nearby, Pinkins said.
