Texas law enforcement officials have arrested a 17-year-old for the murder of woman who was fatally shot while at her son’s gravesite in March. Killeen Police said over the weekend they arrested Christian Lamar Weston for the murder of Yolanda N’Gaojia according to News Channel 5. Police says they were called to a reported shooting on March 22 around 5 p.m.
Once officers arrived to the scene, they found N’Gaojia and another victim. The 52-year-old would later passed away after she was shot while visiting her son’s grave on what would’ve been his 22nd birthday. The second victim, whose name hasn’t been released, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at the scene.
Police said Weston is being held without bond. Weston was arraigned on a separate charge of unlicensed carrying of a weapon with a bond of $5,000, police said.
The reason of the shooting is still being investigated.
