A man has been charged with murder in the mid-morning shooting of a couple on the northeast side that left a man dead.

Dequarusis Dequan Turner, 19, and a female companion were shot several times at his house in the 4900 block of Weaver about 10:35 Tuesday morning, police say.

HPD said they responded to calls of a shooting and found the couple, who were transported to a hospital. Turner died, and the unnamed female has survived, although her condition is unknown, police say.

Witnesses said Rodrick Anthony Obryant, Jr., 29, got into an argument with the couple and shot them, police say. He was arrested without incident.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
