Two men were arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old in Grand Prairie early Monday morning, police say.
Jesse Fulce, 17, and Nathan Oviedo, 20, were booked into the Grand Prairie Detention Center on a capital murder charge each for the slaying of Demarcus Harrell Jr.
About 4:15 a.m. Monday, officers responded to the 2000 block of Aggie Drive, near Watson Street, where they found Harrell with an apparent gunshot wound.
Harrell was taken to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
Police said the three men knew each other, and were “engaged in possible high-risk activity” when a “disturbance between the three occurred” and escalated into a shooting. An Arlington police spokesman previously told The Dallas Morning News police use the term “high-risk activity” when there’s a “strong indication” that an action is dangerous or may lead to death.
Fulce and Oviedo remained in custody Wednesday, with bail set at $1 million each.
