Law enforcement agencies in Texas have made an arrest in a fatal Jan. 30 shooting in South Lake Tahoe.

On Tuesday morning, April 19, members of the U.S. Marshals Service, the Houston and Humble police departments and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office arrested Domenic Seanlee Randolph, 22, in Harris County, Texas, in connection with the death of 40-year-old Dennis Wright Jr., according to a press release from the City of South Lake Tahoe.

Randolph was booked into the Harris County Jail in Houston, Texas, following his arrest and has been charged with murder, according to the release.

Wright was shot and killed outside of the Beverly Lodge in what police believe was a drug deal that turned into a robbery and homicide.
