Man arrested after fatal shooting in Anna

- Police in Anna have made an arrest after a man was shot inside of a home Friday night.

Ruben Christopher Jenkins, 20, was arrested in McKinney around 11:30 p.m. Police said he was arrested on a murder warrant in connection with the shooting death of Corey Lamar, 25.

On Friday night, officers were called out to a home on Creekside Drive just before midnight after several calls reporting "shots fired."

"About 11:30 we heard the shots. Sounded like they were on our front porch," said Debbie Caylor who lives nearby, "My husband jumps out, said that's not firecrackers. He got his rifle. I called 911."

Corey Lamar, 25, was found inside the home unconscious. Police said he was taken to Medical Center of McKinney where he later died from his injuries.

Family friends posted online that Lamar is from DeSoto, Kansas and has been living in Texas for only a few years.

The Texas Rangers and the Collin County Sheriff's Office are assisting with the investigation.

Jenkins remains in the Collin County Jail and charged with murder.
