Austin, TX – Members of the U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force today arrested Deondre White, AKA “Dre,” 19, in the 1300 block of Anna Lee Drive in Killeen. White had been sought on a murder charge related to a mass shooting in the 400 block of East 6th Street in Austin on June 12.

Following a homicide investigation by the Austin Police Department, an arrest warrant for murder was issued for White by the 450th District Court in Travis County on June 21. Austin authorities immediately requested assistance from the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force- Austin Division to locate and apprehend him.

Members of the task force initiated and conducted a fugitive investigation and developed information that White had fled back to his home area in Killeen. The Austin Division contacted the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force in the Waco division and combined efforts to apprehend White.

LSFTF task force officers from Austin and Waco divisions formed a team that closed in on White at a residence on Anna Lee Drive and requested additional assistance from the Killeen SWAT team. White eventually surrendered to authorities and was arrested without incident.

White was transported to the Killeen City Jail where he will await judicial process and extradition with a bond set at $1 million.
