Dallas police have arrested a second person in the fatal shooting of a 9-year-old girl last month in East Dallas.
Tyrese Simmons, 19, has also been charged in the girl’s death. Police said Simmons mistakenly killed Brandoniya after shooting into the wrong apartment. His intended target had been a rapper who “dissed” him in a song.
Simmons turned himself in and remains at the Dallas County jail on a capital murder charge.
