Suspect arrested following deadly shooting in North Richland Hills

Police in North Richland Hills have arrested and charged a man with shooting two other men, killing one of them.

A busy night at Zonga’s Bar and Grill on Blvd. 26 was interrupted, Sunday, by rapid gunfire.

Sergio Granados was there, “We were just having a good time after work, just drinking a few drinks, smoking a little hookah, and out of nowhere we started hearing some shots.”

Customers and employees say the bar was packed with people for the bar’s “club night” when the shooting started around 12:30.

“It was a lot of panic, people inside were freaking out, there was chairs knocked over, just a bunch of panic,” said Tucker Pettit.

Employees and police say it started with a fight inside Zonga’s that spilled out into the parking lot.

“We got up and it was just like a white sedan, just right there in front of the door, and some girls were screaming that the guy was dead, the guy was dead,” said Granados.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner identified the man killed as 24-year-old Tevin Ingram of New Mexico. Family and friends tell Fox 4 Ingram was in town, visiting his daughter for Thanksgiving weekend. He had just welcomed the girl to the world in April, and planned to move to Texas to be with her and his girlfriend.

Hours after the deadly shooting, police were able to make an arrest, and charge a suspect with first degree murder. Police say the suspect is also injured. He is in police custody at an area hospital, with more charges pending.

Investigators say they’re withholding the man’s identity until further investigation is complete.
