HOUSTON – An 18-year-old was charged Wednesday in the shooting death of another teen during a house party in Spring in November, deputies said.
According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, Randy Stewart is charged with murder in the death of 17-year-old Queric Richardson.
Richardson was one of two killed during the house party, which was held at a residence in the 7300 block of Enchanted Creek.
Stewart has been in the Harris County jail since being arrested on Nov. 11 and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the shooting.
Last month, Stewart and his brother, Marvin, were also charged with tampering with evidence. Marvin Stewart is not in custody.
Richardson and Arielle Olivia Shepherd, also 17, were killed and about 20 others were injured when suspects started firing guns during the house party that had been advertised as a birthday celebration on Twitter and other social media.
Investigators are still actively looking into the death of Shepherd.
