DAILYKENN.com -- A black male has been arrested after the fatally shooting of a 17-year-old girl. The victim, Jasmine Lozano, appears to be Hispanic.
Arrested is 17-year-old Chaviya Dewayne Crosby.
Apparently the two had been arguing.
Reports did not say how the 17-year-old suspect acquired a handgun. Texas law prohibits the purchase of handguns by those under 21 and prohibits possession of handguns by those under 18 with exceptions.

The resident alleged that Crosby said he needed to get rid of the gun somewhere, and he left the apartment.
Authorities allege that they determined that Crosby had disposed of the gun. Police obtained a warrant for his arrest. He was charged with first-degree felony murder and tampering with physical evidence, a third-degree felony.
He is being held without bond and court records do not reflect an attorney authorized to speak on his behalf. He has not yet entered a plea.
According to the arrest affidavit, cops found Crosby and interviewed him. He allegedly admitted to shooting Lozano, the affidavit states. He also allegedly admitted to disposing of the firearm by destroying it into several pieces.
While authorities continue to investigate the case, Lozano’s family members — including her sister and four brothers — are mourning her loss.
“We just cant seem to understand this,” her family wrote on a GoFundMe page to raise money for funeral expenses. “She was a caring person to everyone. She had her days, but it doesn’t explain how this could have happened to her. We love you and you will be missed. Fly high, baby girl.”
