De'Ondre White, the 19-year-old suspect involved in the Sixth Street mass shooting that injured 14 and killed one, was booked into the Travis County jail on Thursday.

White was moved from the Bell County jail, nearest to where he lived in Killeen, to Travis County, where the shooting happened. His bond is set at $1 million.

The Killeen Police Department said White was arrested without incident on June 24. If he is convicted, White could face up to life in prison.

Austin Police had previously arrested two other suspects, an unnamed 15-year-old and 17-year-old Jeremiah Tabb, who were released after ballistic evidence connected White's gun to the fatal crime.

The Austin Police Department said White's handgun has been connected to several crimes. New York tourist and 25-year-old Douglas John Kantor was killed during the shooting on June 12.
