HOUSTON (KTRK) --A teenager, who police say shot and killed a man who beat up his mom, is now charged with murder.
Officers arrested Treveon Jones, 18, in connection with the shooting which occurred early Wednesday morning in the parking lot of a gas station near Collingsworth and Des Chaumes in northeast Houston.
ust after 5am, according to Houston police, a woman was beaten by her common-law husband, Frederick Wallace, 40, while in his vehicle at that location. Also inside the vehicle were their three children, all under age 10. The woman called family members to come get her. Jones and another man responded. When family arrived, police say, the men removed Jones' mother and the children from Wallace's vehicle. Wallace attempted to speed away but, investigators say, Jones opened fire on him - possibly as many as 18 times - with some type of assault rifle.
