19-year-old 6th Street shooter indicted on first-degree murder

De'Ondre Jermirris White, the 19-year-old involved in the June 12 shooting on 6th Street in Downtown Austin, has been indicted for first-degree murder for the death of 25-year-old tourist Douglas Kantor.

A Travis County grand jury returned the indictment on Monday, with an additional 14 counts of aggravated assault for injuries to the 14 other victims, according to Travis County District Attorney Jose Garza.

White is in custody with his bail set at $1 million and will likely remain in custody, according to Garza. The case will be prosecuted by the district attorney's office's Homicide and Major Crimes Unit and is pending in the 450th Judicial District Court.

White was originally arrested on June 24 by the Killeen Police Department after the Austin Police Department dropped charges against two other suspects. All teens were present at the scene, but police are not sure they ever fired.

The shooting came after the group of boys, who were connected through school in Killeen, ran into each other on the nightlife strip and got into a verbal altercation. White is the only proven shooter, killing one, leaving one woman permanently paralyzed and another woman relearning to walk.
