Warrant issued in Texas Southern University student slaying
HOUSTON (AP) — A warrant has been issued charging a Houston man with the fatal shooting of a Texas Southern University freshman and the wounding of another person.
Harris County court records show 22-year-old Jartis Leon Leblanc Jr. is sought on murder and aggravated assault counts.
Eighteen-year-old Brent Randall of Houston was shot to death last Friday in a parking lot outside a student apartment complex. Another man was hospitalized with torso and back wounds.
The warrant for Leblanc’s arrest was issued Monday. He remains at large Thursday.
Investigators are trying to determine if the attack came in retaliation for a shooting a day earlier, in the same parking lot, that left another man with a leg wound.
