Authorities said Saturday that the man who they say k*illed a 6-year-old girl after a fight over spilled water is being charged with capital mur*der.
Police say that 35-year-old Raymeon Means left the apartment where the shooting happened early Friday morning. He was caught in the end and sent to jail.
The Harris District Attorney’s Office has charged Means with capital murde*r. According to Pasadena police, he is still in jail without bond.
At the apartment in the 3600 block of Shaver Street, Laurionne was shot more than once. Police said that when they got to the scene, they did CPR on her until EMS took her to Bayshore Hospital, but she died there.
The Pasadena Police Department says Means is related to the person who rents the apartment where the crime happened.
The 6-year-old’s mother identified the little girl as Laurionne Walker.
Laurionne’s mother told ABC13 on Friday that she was left in the care of a relative so she could attend the vigil for Porsha Branch and her three children, who all died in a crash in Spring Sunday night.
The charge of capital mu*rder is defined by the Texas Penal Code as an offense defined under the mur*der statute and in the commission of another crime, including the murd*er of someone ten years old or younger. If convicted, punishments range from life in prison to the death penalty.
It wasn’t immediately known if prosecutors planned to seek the death penalty in this case.
