GARLAND (KRLD) - A 19-year-old has been arrested, following a weekend murder in Garland. 

Police were called to an apartment complex over where witnesses say a man had been shot following an argument. The victim was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. 

Monday, Alberto Irizarry with Garland police says Jaquan Griggs turned himself in.

"We had been talking with his family and told them it was the only way he was going to be able to tell us his side of the story. He came with a lawyer and did not talk to detectives. We still had enough evidence to hard charge him."

Griggs has been charged with murder. His bond set at $1,000,000.

Izizarry says they are still trying to figure out what lead up to the shooting.
