DALLAS (AP) — Dallas police say a 19-year-old high school student has been charged in the death of a friend in an apparent fight over a video game.

Dallas County jail records show Johnathan Turner was being held Tuesday on a murder charge with bond set at $500,000.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for Turner, who was arrested Monday at James Madison High School over the March 24 death of 18-year-old Troy Causey.

Police say the victim, who attended Wilmer-Hutchins High School, suffered a skull fracture in a fight a day earlier outside a residence. Investigators say the teens played basketball for their respective high schools and were friends.

Dallas police did not immediately provide additional details about the video game.
