A 24-year-old man was arrested Monday and charged with murder in the shooting death of another man in unincorporated Galveston County last week.

Muntravian Martin, 24, of Galveston, was arrested in Houston on Monday evening, Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset said.

Martin is accused of shooting Tyreece Beverly, 21, of La Marque, outside a home in Freddiesville, Trochesset said. Freddiesville is an unincorporated community just east of Hitchcock

Beverly was shot multiple times and died before reaching a local hospital, Trochesset said. No other details about the shooting were released on Tuesday.

Martin was held on $150,000 bond and was in custody at the Galveston County Jail on Tuesday afternoon, according to jail records.

Just more tash to take to the curb. If guilty, lock him up and throw away the key or execute him .
