TEXARKANA, Texas (KSLA) - Officials have confirmed that another person has been arrested in connection to a fatal shooting during a Halloween Party in Texarkana.

Andre Morine, 24, was arrested and is facing a murder charge in the shooting at Octavia’s Event Center, which took place just before midnight on Saturday, Oct. 30. One person died; nine others were injured. Police say about 200 people were inside the building when the shooting happened.

According to the Texarkana Texas Police Department, during the detective’s ongoing investigation, they determined Morine was involved and obtained a warrant for his arrest. Police are not currently saying how they believe Morine was involved.

Learning that he had a warrant issued for his arrest, Morine turned himself in to authorities Friday, Nov. 5 and was booked into the Bi-State Jail. His bond is set at $1 million.

“At this point, detectives continue to investigate. This is an ongoing investigation. Wherever that investigation leads them, we will be following up on those leads. There may be additional arrests. It depends on what they are able to determine through their investigation,” said Shawn Vaughn with TTPD.

Another man, Keuntae McElroy, also faces a murder charge and nine counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond is set at $1.95 million.
