A 19-year-old woman was charged with murder after allegedly fatally shooting a Louisiana man in Mesquite last week.

Police said Michelle Myahana Johnson was arrested Saturday in connection with the deadly shooting of Jabari Walters of New Orleans in Mesquite two days prior.

Johnson was arrested after a witness told detectives they heard gunshots and saw a dark-colored vehicle drive away from the scene.

Mesquite police were called to a shooting in the 3800 block of Anthony Drive, near Town East Boulevard and U.S. Highway 80, on August 11. Officers responded to the scene at about 10:35 p.m. and, upon arrival, found Walters, 33, lying on the ground, shot in the torso.

Paramedics transported Walters to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

It is unknown whether Johnson had an attorney, and her bail had not been set by 6:30 p.m. Monday, according to the Dallas County jail’s website.
