A second teenager faces a capital murder charge in the fatal June shooting of a woman in Red Bird.

Julio Falcon, 17, was arrested Tuesday in Grand Saline, about 65 miles east of Dallas, in connection with the slaying of 26-year-old Kerundra Green, Dallas police said Wednesday. It was unclear whether he had an attorney.

Abound 3:30 a.m. June 11, officers responded to the 2300 block of Elderoaks Lane, near West Camp Wisdom and South Hampton roads, and found Green shot multiple times. She was taken to a hospital, where she died.

The other suspect, a 17-year-old whose name has not been released because he was a juvenile at the time of the shooting, was already in custody for a probation violation in July when police said he would face a capital murder charge.

Police have said the motive for the shooting appeared to be a robbery.

Falcon was being held in the Van Zandt County jail Wednesday, and also faces a charge of aggravated robbery. His bail was set at $1.05 million.
