HOUSTON – A man being sought in connection with a shooting that killed a 16-year-old girl last month was arrested last week.
Kenny Garrett, 24, has been charged with murder and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and deadly conduct in connection with the Oct. 26 shooting that police said stemmed from a “social media beef.”

According to Houston police, Garrett was seen getting out of a red car, firing several shots at the victims and then fleeing the scene with three females.
Garrett was arrested Nov. 9.
