De’Ondre Jermirris White, 19, was arrested around 2:23 p.m. in Killeen by members of the U.S. Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and Killeen Police Department Specialized Weapons and Tactics team, Killeen police said. White has been booked in Bell County Jail, where he awaits arraignment on a felony murder charge on $1 million bond, according to the Austin Police Department.
“The tragic incident that occurred in Austin on June 12th received nationwide attention, and we are happy to report that the murder suspect is in custody. We would like to thank the US Marshals Service and our SWAT team for their dedication and persistence to help close a chapter in this investigation," Killeen Police Chief Charles Kimble said in a statement.
White is the third person to be arrested in connection with the June 12 downtown shooting on the 400 block of East 6th. A 15-year-old and a 17-year-old were previously arrested on June 12 and 14, respectively, but charges against both were later dropped by the Travis County District Attorney's Office—although both were involved in the shooting, Austin police said June 22.
Austin police also said the investigation into the incident is ongoing, and requested that anyone with relevant information or footage contact the department by phone or through the Crime Stoppers app.
