Groves detectives secured an arrest warrant for Prevost for first degree murder.

Police previously announced the arrest of 20-year-old Darionte Everfield, of Port Arthur, saying he was located last week in Harris County at a relative’s apartment.

Groves and Port Arthur police responded to McDonald’s, 4500 Twin City Highway, at approximately 10:50 p.m. April 14 in reference to a shooting. They found the 19-year-old victim suffering multiple gunshot wounds.

Solomon was brought to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police recovered surveillance video from the shooting.
