Investigators have made an arrest in the death of 11-year-old Kamren Jones while he was sleeping in his Channelview home.

On June 26, 2019, Harris County Sheriff's Office Homicide Unit Investigators and Harris County Sheriff's Office Gang Task Force Investigators arrested Sonnie Reyes.

The shooting happened around 4:20 a.m. on Sunday, June 8. The suspects fired more than a dozen times — hitting the home in the 15000 of North Brentwood Drive.

The victim was sleeping in a room with several other children. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Gonzalez says the family had only lived in the house for 2 months. He says there had been issues with criminal activity with the previous residents.

"So, we don’t know if they were the intended targets here today, at just random, we don’t know. That’s what we’re trying to figure out," he explained.

Gonzalez made an all to familiar plea for the violence to stop.

"This is senseless. This is sad. This is tragic and on a day where we are honoring a remembering Maleah Davis, it’s sad that we’re losing or we lost another child," he concluded.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office is working to get a description of suspects and car. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers of Houston
