The Associated Press reports a man has been arrested for the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old girl in Dallas, Texas. William Hester, 19, was arrested and charged with manslaughter for killing a high school junior. He allegedly shot her in the head while she was having a party at her house.

Hester, from Mesquite, was arrested Sunday night for killing the 16-year-old.

Just after 4:30 a.m. on Sunday, police responded to a call about a shooting when they found the body of the teenager. Several people were then detained as they were trying to leave the party. The shooting took place at an apartment.

Some of the partygoers told police that some people had been playing with a gun at the party before she was shot.

It is unclear whether Hester has retained an attorney at this time. He is currently being held at the Dallas County Jail.
